cooks up some family fun with Turkey Meatballs
Watch as the celeb chef makes a deliciously simple meal that you and the
kids can all enjoy in no time at all.
All you need is a handful of fresh ingredients including British turkey
breast mince and some store cupboard seasonings, and in under half an
hour, a hungry family could be sat round the table enjoying a delicious
bowl of turkey meatballs and gnocchi, which is
high in vitamin C and it is relatively low in cholesterol to boot. This
dish makes the perfect mid-week meal for all the family.
Phil is a fan of using British turkey in recipes as the breast contains
less saturated fat than any other mainstream meat, while absorbing the
flavours of other ingredients really well, and Filipa’s kids love
helping in the kitchen making turkey meatballs with her.
