Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring and leave you feeling like you have missed out.

I wanted to develop a recipe that was just as exciting as the fattier food you’d normally be eating, yet still be as healthy and lean as possible.

Turkey is obviously a great source of protein and combined with the nutrition of the veg and the good fats in avocados, you are on to a real winner with this dish.

What I like to do is cook enough for three potions on a Sunday in one big batch and then have it for my first couple of meals during the week.

Give this one a whirl and you’ll see how bloody amazingly tasty it is...


Step 1

The key with this dish is finding high-quality ingredients. The better you choose, the easier the cooking will be so it's worth paying a little extra.

Step 2

Season the turkey mince with cajun spices, salt and pepper.

Step 3

Dice chilli, red onion and garlic as fine as you can.

Step 4

Mix into the mince and combine until all seasonings are distributed evenly. Shape the meat into small burgers that are relatively flat and easy to cook.

Step 5

Place the burgers onto a griddle pan on a high heat with a small amount of olive oil.

Step 6

Next, cook some red onion and garlic for a couple of minutes until soft.

Step 7

Turn the heat down and add the kale. You want to cook this gently for 4-5 minutes until it softens fully.

Step 8

Slice up the mango.

Step 9

After about three minutes, flip the turkey burgers and cook for a similar time on the other side.

Step 10

Add the mango to the kale and turn the heat off. You just gently want to warm it, rather than cook it.

Step 11

Peel the avocado and slice into large chunks. Add chilli, red onion and coriander with a squeeze of lemon and salt.

Step 12

Mix it together gently so it keeps its shape and doesn't go to mush.

Step 13

Spoon the kale and mango mix onto the plate.

Step 14

Top with the burgers, the avocado and a nice drizzle of natural yoghurt.

Cooking shouldn't be a big complicated process and this recipe shows that, as long as the ingredients are good, making top-notch healthy food is easy.

Time to get on that lean eating healthy buzz - get involved.
