For this Honesty Diet

recipe, you will need


  • 250g minced turkey
  • 3 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon pre-chopped garlic
  • 2 sundried tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh flat-leafed parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil, for grilling
  • Lettuce leave and slices of tomato and onion, for topping

For the chips:

  • 2 large celeriac
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon mild curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt




  1. Preheat the oven to 230° C.
  2. Mix all the burger ingredients, except for the olive oil, together in a large bowl. Divide the mixture into four equal amounts and shape into burgers. Place them on a plate, cover and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  3. Peel the celeriac by slicing off the top and bottom and using a sharp knife to remove the tough skin. Cut into fat chips. Blanch the chips by boiling them, uncovered, for 2 minutes.
  4. Drain the chips and then place them back in the saucepan. Add the oil, curry powder and sea salt, and coat the chips well.
  5. Spread the chips on to a large baking tray, leaving space between them. Cook in the oven for 30-35 minutes until golden brown and cooked through.
  6. Remove the burgers from the fridge and brush with the olive oil. Place under a preheated grill and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. Dress your burger with the lettuce, tomato and onion and serve with the chips.
