Serves: 3 big portions / 5 lunch portions (for my current lifestyle)
Time: 20 minutes
500g mince (I use turkey breast mince but this can be substituted for any other mince/lentils or veges that you prefer)
2 tablespoons of sunflower oil (or any flavourless oil of your choice)
100g onion, diced finely
100g mixed peppers, diced finely
3 garlic cloves, crushed/finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon garam masla
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Juice from half a lemon (around 2 tablespoons)
Salt, to taste
- Put your pan on a medium high heat and add the oil along with the onions and peppers, saute these off until softened and just starting to brown.
- Add your mince and stir until broken up and sealed on all sides
- Add your salt, garlic and the rest of the spices and give them whole thing a good stir, cover with a lid and let it steam for 6-8 minutes, this will allow all the flavours to mix together.
- Once done, add your lemon juice and mix the whole lot together on the heat for another 2-3 minutes, the mix will be dry (it’s supposed to be!)
- Take the pan off the heat and your spicy mince is ready to eat.
I usually have this mince with a side of steamed vegetables. It can easily be used to top up the protein in your salads, as a filling for samosas and pasties or even in a sandwich! It is also delicious on it’s own as a high protein snack
