Recipe: British Turkey and Peppadew Stuffed Marrow

Hey guys! So I've created this recipe in order to promote British Turkey's, and Peppadew's "I Love British Turkey" Recipe Competition! I love turkey, and as I have been learning a lot about nutrition this year, I know that it is lower in fat than chicken, and an excellent source of protein, B vitamins, Iron and calcium. Also, using turkey mince is a great way of saving on food costs, it's such a versatile ingredient and can stretch a long way. Peppadew peppers are also DELICIOUS! Me and my boyfriend always have a jar of the Hot whole and sweet piquante peppers in the fridge, which we usually have on salads or in sandwiches, but i thought i would have a go at cooking with them this time. This is a delicious recipe, using marrow which is I think a very underestimated, but delicious ingredient when prepared right.

British Turkey and Peppadew Stuffed Marrow(serves 4)

Olive Oil
1 marrow
4 spring onions, finely diced
3 garlic cloves, crushed
500g turkey mince
100g Peppadew Hot whole sweet Piquante peppers, finely diced
½ tsp mixed herbs
Zest of 1 lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
40g fine breadcrumbs
20g finely grated parmesan

1. Preheat the oven to 200C. Slice the marrow in half length ways, and scoop out the pulp. Score with a knife in a criss-cross pattern, drizzle with olive oil, season liberally with salt and pepper, and roast in the oven for 30 minutes.
2. In a large frying pan, fry the spring onions and garlic in 1 tbsp of olive oil, for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the turkey and fry for a further 5 minutes. Add the Peppadew peppers, mixed herbs and lemon zest, and cook for a final three minutes, stirring often.
3. Remove the marrow from the oven. Season the turkey mixture to taste, and then liberally stuff into the marrow halves. Top with the breadcrumbs and parmesan, and bake in the oven for 15 minutes, or until the parmesan has begun to brown.
