Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Rinse, peel and cut the eggplant, zucchini, bell pepper, and onion into even-sized pieces. Place them on a baking tray or in a large oven dish. Add the garlic. Season with salt, pepper, and dried mint. Drizzle with olive oil. Roast in the oven for 20-30 minutes or until the eggplant is soft and has a golden brown color.
  3. While the veggies are in the oven, mix the ingredients for the dressing with an immersion blender.
  4. Combine all the ingredients for the turkey patties and shape them into two smaller patties per serving. Fry on medium-high heat in butter or oil for 10-15 minutes, until they are fully cooked through.
  5. Serve the patties with the oven-roasted vegetables, tahini dressing, and lemon wedges.

Tip!

Prepare a double batch and freeze for a quick dinner or lunch.

Alternatively, you can cook the turkey patties in the oven using a baking pan (flipped halfway through). Make sure to use a separate pan for the vegetables. If you have a convection oven, you can cook the patties and the vegetables at the same time. If you do not have a convection oven, cook them separately.

If you don't have an oven, you can also fry the vegetables in a frying pan or cook everything on the grill.

Feel free to make the tahini dressing ahead of time. You can store it in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days.

    My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe! I used a turkey tenderloin, which I ground in the food processor, then added the spices. The patties came out moist and delish. I also threw in some jalapenos to roast with the veges, for extra kick.
    The tahini sauce was very good too. I have plenty left over to dip celery in for snacking.

    Hello
    Without specific fat content in meat. The recipe macros cannot be relied upon. Any chance providing information on meat fat content?
