Turkey Teriyaki Meatballs (White's Oats)

These healthy flavour packed meatballs make a great tasting midweek family supper - served with a sticky Japanese style sauce. 

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 15-18 minutes

Serves 4

 

50g (2oz) White's ActivOat High in Fibre

1 red onion, peeled and halved

2 small carrots, peeled and finely shredded

500g (1lb 2oz) minced turkey thigh meat

1 small lemon finely grated zest and juice

1 tbsp olive oil

2 large pak choi, trimmed 

100ml (31/2fl oz) Japanese Mirin rice vinegar (see Cook's tip)

3 tbsp reduced salt soy sauce

3 tbsp caster sugar

2 tsp sesame seeds

Thinly sliced fresh red chilli (optional)

Salt and freshly ground black pepper 

 

Roughly chop half the red onion and place into a food processor with half the shredded carrot, minced turkey, oats and lemon zest. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and whizz to a well combined mixture. Using wet hands shape into 20 equal sized balls. Chill until ready to use.

 

Thinly slice the remaining onion. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan and fry the onion and meatballs for 10 minutes shaking the pan occasionally and turning the meatballs frequently until the onion has softened and the meatball are evenly browned.

 

Meanwhile, shred the white bulbous part of the pak choi and the leaves and set aside separately. 

 

In a small bowl mix together the mirin, soy sauce, lemon juice and caster sugar.  Pour over the meatballs and bring to the boil, turn down the heat, scatter over the white bulbous part of the pak choi and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Scatter over the green pak choi and remaining carrot and cook for 2-3 minutes stirring until the pak choi has wilted. Sprinkle over the sesame seeds and red chilli if using. Serve with plain steamed rice.  

 

Cook's tip

Mirin is a sweetened sake or rice wine with a light syrupy texture used a lot in Japanese cooking. It is now readily available in large supermarkets and is a very handy ingredient to keep in your store cupboard. It can be replaced by wine or if you want a kick use sweet chilli sauce and omit the caster sugar (not authentic teriyaki but still very tasty!)

Oaty Potato Cakes with Scrambled Egg and Smoked Salmon (White's Oats)

A match made in heaven! Perfect for a breakfast or a brunch - something the whole family will enjoy.

Preparation time: 5-10 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes

Serves 2

 

100g (31/2oz) White's Speedicook porridge oats

450g (1lb) floury potatoes, peeled and diced

25g (1oz) butter (see cook's tip)

4 large eggs

150ml (1/4pint) skimmed milk

4 slices smoked salmon

1 spring onion, trimmed and thinly sliced

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

 

  1. Cook the potatoes in a pan of lightly salted boiling water for 8-10 minutes. Drain well and return to the saucepan and heat for 30-40 seconds to drive off any excess moisture. Allow to cool.

 

  1. Mash the potatoes with half the butter and season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Stir in the oats and divide the mixture into 4 equal pieces. Shape into 4inch patties.

 

  1. Whisk the eggs and milk together and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.  Add half the remaining butter to a large non-stick frying pan and heat until foaming. Add the potato cakes and fry for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown adjusting the heat if necessary so the butter does not brown. Arrange on kitchen paper, cover and keep warm.

 

  1. Wipe out the pan and return to the heat, add the remaining butter and melt. Stir in the egg mixture and cook over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes stirring until creamy and just set. 

 

  1. Arrange the potato cakes on individual serving plates (serve both or one on the side instead of toast) Spoon over the scrambled eggs and smoked salmon. Sprinkle over the spring onions and freshly ground black pepper and serve immediately.

 

Cook's tip

For an even healthier version omit the butter from the mashed potatoes and use a low calorie cooking spray to cook the potato cakes and scrambled eggs.
