Turkey is a favourite of mine and I wanted to try and get my children to like it a little more than they do- this dish did the trick. It’s a quick and tasty meal for all the family to enjoy. Turkey is a great source of protein and B vitamins and is definitely not just for Christmas. Hands up winner!
Turkey, garlic and tarragon pittaPrint Recipe
- 1 large onion, finely chopped
- 3 large cloves of garlic, crushed
- 500g turkey mince
- Salt and pepper
- 1 tablespoon dried tarragon
- 4 x Pitta bread
Heat a little olive oil or butter in a large saucepan or deep frying pan, chop the onion and lightly fry for 5 minutes, add the garlic and fry for 1 minute before adding the mince, keep turning the mince over until it is white all over.
Add the salt, pepper and tarragon, continue to cook for 10-15 minutes on a medium heat until piping hot and cooked through.
Place the pitta bread in a toaster for 1 minute, slice the top of the pitta and add the mince.
* If your child is stuck on white bread, face one challenge at a time, so use a white pitta first time round and the wholemeal pitta the next time.
