125g turkey mince

5g psyllium husk

1 garlic clove, crushed

8 cherry tomatoes, halved

1 Lebanese cucumber, chopped

Method:

  • Using your hands, squeeze the extra moisture from the grated zucchini (approx. ½ small fruit) then combine in a bowl with the turkey mince, psyllium (approx. 2 tsp), garlic, parsley, cumin and cayenne pepper. Season with salt and pepper, then mix with your hands and shape into 3-4 meatballs.
