Bubba Friendly Turkey Patties

This recipe was created by Nutritionist Diana Krisanski for the baby book, Thriving Bubba. Over to you Diana...
Turkey is a rich source of protein, iron and fat to incorporate into your baby's diet (see Thriving Bubba for specific time line introduction guidelines).
I have a few recipes for patties, slices and bites as they can be used as both a savoury snack and for meals on the go. Once cooked they freeze well and will last up to 3 months in the freezer but best consumed within 1 month of freezing.
You can mix it up by swapping in grated sweet potato, apple, finely chopped mushrooms or broccoli. You can also make a turkey bolognaise using similar ingredients; simply omit the egg and flour and add 500ml of broth, serve with cauliflower rice, mashed sweet potato or properly prepared brown rice.
Let's get cooking Mumma...
500gm free range turkey mince
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
1 carrot, grated
1 zucchini, grated
Salt and pepper
½ teaspoon ground oregano
½ teaspoon ground coriander
2 tablespoons coconut flour
2 –3 tablespoons coconut oil
Add all ingredients, except coconut oil, to a large bowl and mix well by hand. Mixture should easily roll into balls without being too sticky, you may need to add a touch more flour if your mixture is still a little sticky to touch. Coconut flour is highly absorbent so add small amounts at a time.
Use a tablespoon to make mixture into balls. Place pre-rolled patties into the fridge for 30 minutes before cooking, this step is not essential but will help them hold their shape during cooking.
Heat coconut oil in a large frying pan and add 4 balls at a time to warmed pan, flatten balls into patties and cook for 5 –7minutes each side or until cooked through and golden brown.
Follow serving suggestions above, patties will keep for 2 days in the fridge and 3 months in the freezer.
