Many of you find it difficult to get a healthy amount of lean protein, complex carbs, and vegetables into your diet. Well, my ‘Garden Fresh Turkey Burger’ does the trick and the burger itself only has 235 calories!
1.25 lb. lean ground turkey
1 c. Quaker Oats uncooked (quick or old fashioned)
1 c. finely chopped onion (white, yellow, or purple – your choice!)
1 c. finely chopped red or green bell pepper
¾ c. shredded zucchini (about 1 small)
¼ c. Organic Ketchup (Also try Sugar Free or Low-Sodium Ketchup)
2 cloves garlic, crushed
¼ c. Egg whites (to bind it all together)
Add some seasoning salt/herbs of your choice
Combine ingredients; mix well (use your hands to mush it all together). Shape into 6 large burgers.
Outdoor – Cook on the grill! Grill over medium heat on outdoor grill…just a few minutes on each side.
Indoor – Spray cookie sheet or pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Broil on center rack in oven for 8 – 12 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
Serve alone with a little feta cheese on top or on Sandwich Thins and garnish with lettuce and slice tomato if desired.
