Mini Turkey Somethin-Or-Others

In an attempt to cook healthier and more often I’m gonna try to share some recipes, experiments, and whatnot. These in particular are attack phase Dukan-friendly, though they could be easily made into burgers.

Ingredients
1 ½ lb ground turkey
1/3 small onion
1-2 cloves of garlic
5-6 sprigs of thyme (or to taste)
1-2 tbsp fennel or celery
1 egg white
Salt and dry herbs to taste

I try to make my recipes easy to adjust based on taste and how much you want to spend. For example, I had leftover fennel and thyme from another recipe, but otherwise I would have used the dried herbs I have in my cupboard, or celery (which I generally have). Go ahead and throw in whatever you want!

Steps

1. Finely dice your onion, garlic, and fennel. Since these are patties, you want these as thinly chopped as possible (unless you like the crunch of onion). Combine these in a bowl with the turkey, egg white, and spices.

2. Mold the mix into patties. Or meatballs. I made them small because I wanted them to cook faster, but you can do anything with them.

3. Grease the pan lightly with oil (I use olive) and cook them for a few minutes on each side. (For a healthier option you can probably bake them.)

4. Take them off the pan onto a paper towel to catch extra grease. Enjoy!

Dukan Miracle Soup

If you’re a ‘fan’ of dieting then you have probably heard of this soup before, better known as cabbage soup! It is not exactly the same but contains most of the same ingredients and is a very filling soup, great if you’re trying to lose weight – hence it being called ‘Miracle Soup’. This soup is actually so filling that I couldn’t even finish a bowl!

The official Dukan recipe is as follows:

4 cloves of garlic
6 large onions
1 large head of cabbage
6 carrots
2 green peppers
1 bunch of celery
1 can peeled tomatoes
3 low-sodium beef bouillon cubes
3 low-sodium chicken bouillon cubes

 

I changed this slightly, as bouillon isn’t that easy to find in the UK, and used Knorr vegetable stock instead. However, the amounts are ridiculous! If I made the above recipe, I could have fed myself on this soup alone for the next year. I tweaked it quite a lot and cooked 2 large pans full.

Here is the soup recipe that I used:

2 tbsp of Very Lazy garlic (I LOVE garlic)
1 medium sized onion
Half a head of cabbage
2 carrots
1 green pepper
2 stalks of celery
1 can peeled tomatoes
1 tbsp of Knorr vegetable stock
Water

This is such a quick and easy recipe to make. I just chopped all the vegetables up (after peeling, deseeding, etc) and bunged them in a pan, covered them with hot water from the kettle and stirred in the stock powder. After that it was just a waiting game for them to boil and cook. I didn’t do it for very long, approximately ten minutes, as I love crunchy vegetables but if you like them soft, leave it on a mid heat for around 20 minutes.
