Turkey, Garlic and Tarragon Pitta

turkey pitta

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 pitta

Print Recipe
Serves: 4 Cooking Time: 20 mins


  • 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.
