Ingredients
(One serving)
■ 150g turkey mince
■ 150g quinoa (cooked)
■ 10g onion (diced)
■ 1 courgette
■ 5g pomegranate seeds
■ 15g corn niblets
■ 15g red pepper (diced)
■ 15g yellow pepper (diced)
■ 20g fresh peas
■ 15g dried cherries
■ pinch of thyme
■ pinch of parsley
■ 1 tsp English mustard

Method
■ Start by dicing the onion and roughly chopping the thyme and parsley, then blend the three together with turkey mince. Transfer the mix to a at surface and spread it out into a rectangular shape, 1cm thick. Roll into a short roll from there, roughly 4cm thick.
■ Use a mandolin to shave the courgette into ribbons, then season with salt. Wrap the courgette ribbons around the roll and place on a large piece of cling lm. Carefully roll this up tightly, tying the ends up so it’s waterproof.

■ Steam the roll in a steamer or other similar device for 12 to 15 minutes, so the roll cooks through. In the meantime, mix all the other ingredients together in a large bowl with the cooked quinoa, and serve on a large plate or bowl. Sprinkle cherries on the top.
■ Take the roll out of the steamer and cut into three pieces. Remove cling film, serve rolls on the quinoa mix. Merry Christmas!
