Part of the reason these Slimming World Syn Free Tikka Turkey Burgers are so quick and easy is because of how we cooked them.
A couple of weeks ago, Tefal sent over an OptiGrill, so we’ve been putting our #GrillSkills to the test, and in the process came up with these Slimming World Syn Free Tikka Turkey Burgers!
We cooked these burgers on our Tefal OptiGrill, which senses how thick the meat is, and cooks it to your liking automatically. How amazing is that?!
Sounds a little too good to be true… right? That’s what we thought, but oh no – it makes it much easier to grill burgers, steaks, and chicken!
We’ve made a few recipes using the Tefal Optigrill, and I can honestly say it has given perfect results each time.
It’s pretty damn impressive – which is something we never say about anything. We’re very hard ladies to please, especially when it comes to kitchen gadgets!
It’s nice to not have to worry about ruining a really expensive steak, or undercooking things like burgers. Especially ones made from poultry mince.
You have to be very careful, and make sure they’re cooked through, especially if you have children.
The Tefal Optigrill is also handy to use when you fancy grilled food, but don’t fancy getting the BBQ out. With the heatwave we’ve we’ve just experienced, it’s even too hot to BBQ outside!
The bonus is that the Optigrill is ridiculously easy to clean. The plates come off, and are dishwasher safe.

How many Syns are in this Slimming World Syn Free Tikka Turkey Burgers?
This Slimming World Syn Free Tikka Turkey Burgers are only Syn free if you use your HEB on a wholemeal roll that counts as a Healthy Extra B choice.
You can use any wholemeal roll as long as it weights 60g.
If you don’t use the roll as your HEB, then don’t forget to Syn it.
How do I make these Syn Free Tikka Turkey Burgers?
First, make the Tikka seasoning (if you don’t have any made up already).
Mix all the ingredients together well, then store in an airtight jar until ready to use.
In a large bowl mix the Turkey Mince with all the other burger ingredients (Not the Frylight, Rocket, Tomatoes and Rolls.)
If your mince is dry then add the egg. If not see what it’s like after you’ve mixed the burger ingredients. If it needs binding, add the egg a little at a time. You don’t want the mix to be too sloppy.
Put the burgers on a plate or tray, cover and refrigerate for a short time so they firm up slightly.
Meanwhile, make the Raita.
Cut the piece of cucumber in half lengthways, scoop out the seeds and finely chop the flesh. Place it in a bowl. Finely chop the fresh mint leaves and add to the bowl with the cucumber.
Stir in the yogurt and season to taste with the salt. Set the raita aside in the refrigerator.
When you’ve made the Raita, turn on the OptiGrill and select the burger setting, then press OK.
Allow the OptiGrill to preheat. When it’s ready the indicator light will stop flashing and you will hear a beep.
Spray the burgers on both sides with Frylight, then cook them on the OptiGrill until the indicator light turns red.
While the burgers are cooking, slice the buns in half and arrange the rocket on the bottom followed by the sliced tomato.
Remove the cooked burgers, place them on the rocket and tomatoes, then spoon some of the raita on top of the burgers.
Place the top of the roll on the burger and serve.
Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight.
Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free!
The Sunflower, Olive Oil or Rapeseed flavours are ideal for these Syn Free Tikka Turkey Burgers.
