Hints, Tips + Tricks
- 200 g (7 oz) lean turkey mince
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp grated ginger
- 2 tsp fresh or dried rosemary
- 1 tsp fresh or dry thyme leaves
- 1 tsp chopped fresh coriander stalks
- 3 tbsp tamari + 1 tsp tamari
- 1 tsp Himalayan salt
- 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 200 g (7 oz) fennel bulb, chopped into bite sized pieces
- 300 ml (10.1 fl oz) Kombu Water
- 320 g (11.2 oz) choy sum, washed, and chopped into pieces
- 1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves, to serve
- 1 tsp ground wakame
- Make the meatballs by mixing together the turkey mince, garlic, ginger, rosemary, thyme, coriander stalks and 1 teaspoon of tamari. Add the salt and pepper and stir through.
- Roll the meatballs into 6 equal sized balls approximately 33 grams or 1 ounce in weight.
- Heat a large frying pan on medium heat with 1 tablespoon of tamari and add the meatballs. Cook the balls for 5 minutes, rolling them often to ensure they cook evenly.
- Add another tablespoon of tamari and toss in the fennel pieces and continue to sauté and fry for a further 3 minutes until the fennel bulb softens a little and goes light brown.
- Add the kombu water and bring to a simmer. Remove the meatballs from the pan and then add the choy sum and cook for 60 seconds and then remove from the heat.
- Taste the liquid for flavour, adding a bit of salt and pepper if needed.
- Plate this dish by placing the vegetables and meatballs in a deep plate with a good splash of the liquid. Sprinkle over some of the coriander leaves and ground wakame and serve.
