Turkey Burgers (serves 4)
Turkey burgers can be a bit bland which is why I serve mine with a good dollop of homemade guacamole on top (see my recipe ‘My Kinda Guacamole’). To add some extra taste I mix some very finely chopped red onion and some chopped cilantro to the ground turkey mix. As a binder I used cooked quinoa and it worked perfectly but doesn’t alter the taste. No.1 son told me that quinoa by itself was too nutty for his taste, but he did not detect it in his burger! You can grill these or cook them in a frying pan. Just make sure they are cooked right through as they are quite thick burgers.
1 pound ground turkey
3 oz cooked quinoa
3/4 tbsp. very finely chopped red onion
1/2 tbsp. chopped cilantro
Salt and freshly ground pepper
Mix all ingredients together well.
Shape into 4 burgers.
Whatever method you use to cook them, make sure they are cooked right through.
