    • Cooking time: 30 minutes

    Serves: 4


    250g Waitrose Brown Basmati & Wild Rice
    150g frozen peas
    400g pack essential Waitrose British Lean Turkey Breast & Thigh Mince
    1 bunch salad onions, thinly sliced
    75g dried apricots, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
    125g pack pomegranate seeds
    ½ x 28g pack coriander, chopped
    150g tub fat-free yogurt
    2 tbsp white wine vinegar
