These burgers are the bomb! The recipe makes a big batch, and all the healthy veggies stretch a pound of ground turkey a long way! The dipping sauce is a fantastic addition, and it will go well with lots of your dishes.
Loaded Turkey Burgers
1 lb ground turkey (I like Empire Brand, but you can use your favorite. Look for organic without added ingredients.)
1 c finely grated/chopped carrot
1/2 c finely chopped mushrooms (I used white mushrooms.)
3 green onions, sliced
1 tbs minced garlic
1 c bread crumbs (make your own or use the brand you prefer, you can substitute gluten-free bread crumbs)
1 tbs cumin
4 tbs parsley
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
Makes about a dozen nice size patties. I haven’t tried freezing them, because we ate them all! However, they seem a litte delicate, so I would advise wrapping each patty individually before storing in a freezer container.
I like to process all the veggies, except the green onions, in the food processor. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Drop by large spoonfuls into a frying pan and flatten with a spatula. I reccommend using olive or coconut oil to cook your patties. These only take about 5 mins per side if you have flattened them out well in the pan. Transfer to a plate and serve with the spicy yogurt dipping sauce below! Yumminess!!
Spicy Yogurt Dipping Sauce
1/2 c plain whole milk yogurt (I like Stonyfield Organic plain whole milk yogurt.)
2 tbs lemon juice
1 tbs dill
2 tbs chives
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
Black pepper to taste
Whisk all ingredients together in a bowl. If your family really likes to dip, you may want to double the recipe. This sauce would be great with raw veggies, roasted cauliflower, or baked sweet potato fries!
