I write, edit, eat, cook, lift, sweat and paleo. All in Egypt. While my husband snaps the photos and generally tries to stay out of the way of the carnage that is my cooking and sassing.

  • 500g ground turkey breast
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 small onion, finely minced
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil or healthy fat of choice, salt and pepper
  • In a bowl, mix together the turkey, onion, garlic clove, cilantro, paprika, oregano and cumin.
  • Let it sit in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to tighten up and make the burgers easier to form.
  • In an oven-proof skillet, heat your oil. Also heat your oven to 160C or 325F.
  • Form your burger patties (this will give you four) and salt and pepper both sides.
  • Fry or grill on high heat for about two minutes on either side or until golden brown.
  • Transfer to the oven if inside or move to lower heat on grill and let cook for 15 minutes or until cooked through.
  • Serve with guacamole and an egg cooked to your liking in lots and lots of lettuce.
