Ahhh! so i may have boasted a whole lot about these turkey veggie patties on my instastories the last few days, but omg! thery were amazing! not only amazing but super healthy! I used 98% lean turkey mixed in with ground broccoli and cauliflower. How much healthier can you get! Don’t mind my abrupt introduction as i’m feeding elizabeth with one hand and typing with the other. All in all the biggest success with this recipe is that the hubby thoroughly loved it!! I’ve found myself cooking with more spices to enhance flavors while keeping the recipe healthy because I have to lose this baby weight in time for Bali in 2 months!! If you try this out please let me know!!x

I made another batch today to freeze individually for a quick healthy meal on the go whenever I don’t have time to cook! Thats how much both Mike & I loved it! Ok so here goes!
