Description

Hearty, flavorful turkey burgers with a side of whole-grain grilled bread, all topped with a simple drizzle of tahini.

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Medium Zucchini, Shredded
  • 1 whole Shallot, Finely Chopped
  • 3 cloves Garlic
  • ⅓ cups Almond Meal
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • ½ teaspoons Paprika
  • 1 pound Ground Turkey, 85% Lean
  • Sea Salt And Pepper, For Seasoning Before Grilling
  • 6 slices Whole Grain Bread
  • 1 bunch Mixed Greens
  • 6 slices Red Onion
  • Crushed Red Pepper Flakes, To Serve
  • Fresh Cilantro, Chopped, To Serve
  • FOR THE TAHINI DRESSING:
  • ⅓ cups Tahini
  • 2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons Warm Filtered Water
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic Powder
  • 1 pinch Sea Salt, to taste

Preparation

In a medium-sized bowl, stir shredded zucchini, shallot, garlic, almond meal, and spices (not the salt and pepper). Add ground turkey and mix with your hands until just combined (as Dad says, “don’t overwork the meat”).

Form into 6 balls just larger than a golfball and flatten each into a patty so that the inside is slightly thinner than the edges to ensure even cooking throughout. Cover and refrigerate 30–60 minutes.

Prepare the tahini dressing while waiting by whisking all the ingredients together in a jar or small glass bowl. Set aside.

Heat a large cast-iron skillet (nonstick skillet or grill will also work) over medium heat and coat with oil. Season with salt and pepper just before placing them in the skillet to cook. Place 2 to 3 patties in the skillet at a time and cook 4–5 minutes on one side, then flip and cook 4–5 minutes on the other. Remove from heat and set aside.

If needed, add a touch more oil to the skillet and place 2 to 3 slices of whole-grain bread in the skillet. Cook 2–3 minutes on each side, but keep an eye on it because cook times will vary depending on the thickness of the slice and how crispy you’d like it. Remove from heat when finished.

Assemble plates by creating a bed of mixed greens, and then adding red onion, a slice of bread and a turkey burger to each. Drizzle with tahini dressing, and sprinkle crushed red pepper flakes and fresh chopped cilantro on top. Serve immediately.
