Turkey Meat Balls with Oat Bran

Makes 15-30 balls depending on the size you roll.

400g Turkey thigh mince
100g Oats or oat bran 3/4 finely chopped spring onions
Large handful of fresh chopped tarragon 1 x tsp freshly ground black pepper
Handful of finely chopped spinach leaves
Large pinch of pink Himalayan salt
Olive oil
Option: Large handful copped cooked shiitake mushrooms

Directions
Prepare an oven tray and heat oven to 165 degrees Celsius.
Place all ingredients in a bowl with a splash of olive oil,
and use hands (food gloves are advised) to mix ingredients into a dough.
Take a small handful of mixture and roll into a ball, create as many balls as you can all of a similar size. Drizzle a little olive oil over each one.
Place them all on a grease proof paper on oven tray and cook for 20 minutes
or until cooked through. You can alternatively shallow fry, but this will add
more fat and calories.

For burgers
Place a cutter on the oven tray on greaseproof paper and fill with mixture around 2 thirds the way up, pat in down into a firm patty and pull away cutter.
Repeat until all mixture is used.
Cook for 20 minutes or until cooked through.
