I don’t think I’ve ever had a moister, tenderer turkey burger! These are very quick and easy with a food processor and more than worth the little effort they take to make. I just wonder why everything I make has to be so brown! Feel free to change up the herbs and spices as well as the vegetables to fit your family’s taste buds. I’m thinking next time perhaps I’ll use some garam masala instead of the smoked paprika. Makes 4 burgers.
First, put in the bowl of a food processor:
1/2 large onion (or 1 small onion), chunked
1/4-1/3 cup carrot pieces (I used shredded carrots)
1 medium or 2 small zucchini, chunked
Pulse until riced. Remove to a bowl and add:
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon roasted garlic granules (or 1 teaspoon finely minced garlic)
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 pound ground turkey
Mix to combine, I used my hand. Don’t overmix or your burgers will get tough when cooked. Form into 4, 1/2 inch thick patties, they will be soft. Cook in a 10-12″ skillet with 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat 5-8 minutes per side until cooked through. Serve with your favorite condiments on your favorite gluten-free buns. I happen to love avocado with my burgers as seen in the photo.
