  • For the Patties:
  • 450 g turkey mince
  • 1 cup cooked quinoa chilled
  • 3 teaspoons Dunn's River Hot Curry Powder*
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 2-3 tablespoons breadcrumbs for coating
  • Olive oil for frying
  • For the Slaw:
  • 1 x400g Dunn's River Peas & Beans* drained, rinsed under cold water
  • 2 large peaches ripe but firm, halved, deseeded, spiralized
  • 1 medium zucchini spiralized
  • 2 green onions finely chopped
  • For the Salad Dressing:
  • 1 and 1/3 tablespoon Encona Hot Pepper Sauce*
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil I used cold pressed rapeseed oil
  • 1 small garlic clove crushed
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon honey


  • Combine all the Salad Dressing ingredients, add half of the dressing to the peas/beans and mix together well. Set aside.
  • Combine all the Patties ingredients, mix well (use the back of a spoon to do this) and form small patties approx. 2 cm thick (the mixture won't stick to your hands if you sprinkle a little water on them) . Coat the patties in the breadcrumbs. Set aside.
  • To make the Slaw, combine the peach and zucchini, add the bean mixture, drizzle with the rest of the dressing and scatter the onion over the top. Set aside.
  • Heat up 2 tablespoons of oil and fry the patties over a medium/low heat for about 4 minutes on each side (add a little more oil if necessary after you've turned them over). Serve hot with a good helping of the slaw.
