1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, fan 200°C, gas 7. Brush 1 tsp vegetable oil between 4 muffin tin holes.

2. Unroll the pastry and cut out 4 x 9cm rounds. Push the pastry into the greased muffin holes, prick the base with a fork and bake on the middle shelf of the oven for 10-15 mins until golden. Press them down in the centre if they have started to rise. Cool in the tin for 5 mins, once cool enough to handle remove from the tin to a plate.

3. While the pastry cooks, heat the remaining 1 tsp vegetable oil in a frying pan over a high heat. Add the garlic, spring onion, pepper, turkey and 2 tomatoes, then cook for 6-8 mins until the pepper is cooked and the tomatoes have started to break down to create a light sauce.

4. Fill the pastry cases with the turkey filling, sprinkle over the cheese, allowing it to melt, then top with a little yogurt, lettuce and coriander.
