Quick weeknight dinner, turkey and vegetable rissoles recipe

Posted in Recipes.

Rissoles have long time been a favourite of my own children and a delicious, budget-friendly meal to boot. Here I swap out the usual chicken or beef mince for tasty turkey and get the thumbs up from my kitchen crowd.

A brilliant carrier of vegetables, rissoles are great for smuggling extras if your kids are going through a food refusal/picky eater/ just don’t want to phase. You can add whatever vegetables you like or have in the fridge, imagination is the limit!
