Instructions

Cook the Rice
1
  • Pour 300ml cold salted water (double for 4p) into a medium pot with a tight-fitting lid.
  • Stir in the rice and bring to the boil.
  • Once boiling, lower heat to medium, cover with the lid and cook for 12 mins.
  • Once cooked, remove the pot from the heat.
  • Keep covered for another 12 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).
2
  • Trim and halve the green beans.
  • Halve the chilli and discard the core and seeds. Finely chop.
  • Zest then quarter the lime.
  • Roughly chop the coriander (stalks and all).
Make the Meatballs
3
  • Add mince, breadcrumbs, 2 tbsp water, ¼ tsp salt (double both for 4p) and half the Thai spice mix to a large bowl.
  • Season with pepper and mix together by hand. 
  • Roll into evenly-sized balls, five per person. IMPORTANT: Wash hands and equipment after handling raw mince.
  • Place a large pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil
  • Once hot, fry the meatballs until browned all over and cooked through, 6-8 mins. Once cooked, remove from the pan.
Char the Green Beans
4
  • Return the pan to medium-high heat with another drizzle of oil if necessary. 
  • Once hot, fry the green beans until starting to char, 2-3 mins.
  • Season with salt and pepper
  • Stir in the red Thai paste, remaining Thai spice mix and chilli (use less if you don't like spice).
  • Cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 min.
5
  • Add the passata, the juice of two lime wedges (double for 4p), half the coriander and 150ml water. Stir to combine.
  • Return the meatballs to the pan.
  • Cover with a lid and leave to simmer for 8-10 mins. IMPORTANT: Meatballs are cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
  • Season to taste with salt, pepper and sugar.
  • Stir the lime zest through the rice, fluffing it up as you go.
6
  • Spoon the green beans and Thai style Turkey meatballs into bowls.
  • Garnish with the remaining coriander.
  • Divide the lime rice between bowls and serve alongside.
  • Serve with remaining lime wedges for squeezing over.
