These tasty burgers have a little chilli kick, are quick to prepare and ideal to pop into a sealable container and take to work for lunch.


  • 300g of turkey mince
  • 4 spring onions, 2 finely chopped, 2 sliced
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped, plus extra slices
  • A small chunk of ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 free-range egg yolk
  • ¼ of a bunch of fresh coriander, leaves chopped
  • 1 tbsp of coconut oil
  • 2 wholemeal pitta breads
  • 30g of watercress
  • 1 tomato, sliced (optional)


  1. In a bowl, mix the turkey mince, chopped spring onion, chopped chilli, ginger, egg yolk and most of the coriander until fully combined, then use your hands to form two burger patties.
  2. Heat the coconut oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat until melted. Fry the burgers for 5 minutes on each side until cooked through.
  3. Toast the pitta breads and carefully slice open. Stuff with the watercress and place a burger in each. Finish with the sliced chilli, remaining coriander, sliced spring onion and sliced tomato, if using.
