Curry Turkey Sliders

Curried Turkey Sliders

Every recipe starts out as an experiment for me. Often, I’m trying to see how healthy and flavourful I can make something and still have my kids eat it. I’m fortunate to be blessed with children that are not too picky. Although they both have things they won’t eat, they will usually try at least one bite of whatever I make. I think these sliders are an example of a recipe that really turned out (that doesn’t always happen). As a result, they’ve become a fairly regular meal at our house. I usually mix them up in the morning, so at dinnertime I just need to form and bake them. My son also loves to have them in his lunch the next day (cold). You can top them with whatever you like, my favourite is the Mango topping recipe I’ve added below and a few baby spinach leaves.

 

Sliders:

1 Lbs Ground Turkey

1 Cup Apple, grated (about 1 large apple)

1 1/2 Cups Cooked Quinoa

1/2 Cup Onion, finely diced

1 Egg

1 Tbsp Madras Curry

2 tsp Ginger, grated

12 Slider buns

Mix together the first seven ingredients until well combined. Let rest in the fridge for at least 1 hour. Then form the mixture into 12 sliders and bake for 20 – 25 minutes at 375 degrees, until cooked through.

Mango topping:

1 Mango, finely diced

1 Tbsp honey

1 tsp Cardamom

1/3 Cup Water

Mix together all ingredients in a small sauce pan. Cook over low to medium heat for 5 – 10 minutes until thickened.
