It’s almost burger season! Summer is definitely my favorite. It reminds me of the beach, barbecues, vacations, sun, sun, and more sun. It’s not QUITE summer yet, but it’s so close I can taste it. I wanted to make a turkey burger that was a bit healthier so zucchini got added to the picture. It’s one of my favorite vegetables and super easy to find during the summer. It very delicately changes the flavor profile of the burger and not enough to make a huge difference so you can sneak veggies into your food.
- 1 lb lean ground turkey
- 1 small zucchini, grated
- 1/4 cup seasoned whole wheat breadcrumbs
- 1 clove garlic, grated
- 1 tbsp red onion, grated
- salt and fresh pepper
- oil spray
Squeeze excess water from zucchini with a paper towel. In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, zucchini, breadcrumbs, garlic, onion, salt and pepper. Make 4 equal patties.
Heat a large skillet on high heat. When hot, lightly spray oil. Add burgers to the pan and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook on one side until browned, then flip. Flip over a few times to prevent burning and to make sure the burgers are cooked all the way through. Serve on buns with your favorite toppings and sides.
*I served this with roasted sweet potatoes w. agave & rosemary.
