Veggie-turkey burgers

Veggie-Turkey Burgers

I made these and they were delish! Way better than the store bought soy or veggie burgers.

I mixed various uncooked veggies I had on hand in the food processor until they were finely chopped-spinach, carrots, zucchini, and green onion. You could probably use any veggies for this. A blender should work just as good as a food processor. If you don't have either, I'm not sure if it would work as well if you tried chopping them finely. They would have to be pretty fine. I suppose you could cook the veggies a little first and then mash them up.

I mixed the veggies with a lb. of ground turkey. I did not measure, but I would say you probably want more turkey than veggies because they are very moist and tend to fall apart. You could also add some egg and/or bread crumbs to help them stay together better. Freezing them ahead of time helps. I added some italian herbs, and garlic, and salt and pepper, and some barbecue sauce (you can use low carb bbq sauce or gluten free bread crumbs or even leave the sauce out).

I heated up some olive oil to fry them in. You can use any oil. You want the oil to be very hot (you can turn it down if it spatters) and only turn the burger once. You want it to be fairly brown on each side. Turning them more often will also make them tend to fall apart. Make the burgers fairly large as they do shrink.

They came out really good. I don't put them on bread, since I'm allergic, but they taste fine on bread. I also melted cheese on it and put a little dab of ketchup, mayo and mustard on it. Both my husband MIL liked them, and they are very picky.

You could also use cooked soy or any beans instead of the turkey.

This recipe seems pretty fool proof! A good way to get more veggies in your diet.

Both gluten free and low carb!
