Za'atar & Garlic Turkey Nuggets-serves 4-6


700g cubed turkey breast

150-200g fine breadcrumbs

1tbsp za'atar

2 tbsp rapeseed oil

2 tbsp garlic paste

250ml sunflower oil for frying


  • Mix the za'atar, oil and garlic in a large bowl. Add the turkey and make sure every piece is evenly coated.

  • Pour the breadcrumbs onto a plate and pour the turkey on top. Make sure that every piece is evenly coated. Use your hands to pat on the breadcrumbs.

  • Heat the sunflower oil in a frying pan and put in one piece of breaded turkey. When it starts to bubble, the oil is hot enough. Cook the turkey in batches, putting in a paper towel-lined dish once ready. Cover with foil whilst you wait for the rest of the turkey to cook. Remove the paper towel and serve.

  • I served these with flatbreads/pita, chopped salad and hummus.
