Turkey Meatballs


  • 1 tin of haricot beans
  • 1 onion
  • 1 chilli
  • 1 slice of bread
  • A handful of fresh parsley (finely chopped)
  • Flour
  • 500g of turkey mince
  • 2 tablespoons of oil


Drain the beans, rinse and cover with water. Bring to the boil, then reduce the water down to a simmer for 10 minutes until tender. Drain and mash to a pulp in a mixing bowl.
Finely chop the onion and chilli and add to the bowl with the beans. Grate in the bread and finely chopped parsley. Add to the bowl with the flour and stir to combine.
Add the mince to the mixed ingredients and mix it all together with your hands.
Then, with lightly floured hands, form the mixture into roughly 20 small spheres.
Fry the meatballs in oil in a frying pan for roughly 10 minutes on a medium heat. Cook until piping hot all the way through and serve.

Serve with a simple tomato sauce or your chosen condiment.
