Turkey Spice Sensation

Here’s an aromatic and delicious warm salad with a difference – spiced turkey mince and couscous topped with fresh pomegranate and mint.


In a large frying pan fry the red onion with the garlic over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes without colour, add the spices and cook for a couple of minutes, stirring.

Add 250g of turkey mince (or chicken/soya mince if you prefer) and cook until browned and cooked through.

Meanwhile make up a packet of Spice Sensation Couscous according to the packet instructions. Fluff with a fork and stir through the turkey mixture with the lemon zest, coriander and mint.

Serve sprinkled with pistachios and pomegranate seeds and a drizzle of plain yoghurt and pomegranate molasses.
