  • 500 g lean turkey mince
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 1 green pepper chopped
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 70 g frozen sweetcorn
  • 1 400 g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 100 ml chicken stock
  • 150 g 30 minutes easy cook brown rice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 75 g grated low fat cheddar cheese


  • Pre-heat oven to 180c Fan
  • Heat a large non-stick pan over a medium heat and brown the turkey mince for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside leaving the turkey juices in the pan.
  • Add the onion, garlic and green pepper and sauté in the turkey juices together until soft, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the spices for 1 minute then the sweetcorn, chopped tomatoes, stock, rice and salt and pepper. Add back the browned turkey and allow to simmer for a couple of minutes.
  • Lightly grease a suitably sized casserole dish and carefully spoon all the cooked ingredients into the dish. Sprinkle the cheese over the top.
  • Cook in centre of oven for about 25 - 30 minutes until cheese is bubbling. Serve.


All ovens vary with cooking time so you might need to cook your casserole for a little longer than stated if your rice isn't soft enough for your liking.
