Guilt Free Turkey Burger

October 18, 2017

Burgers; most, if not all people love and crave them! Yet, they're always blacklisted as being unhealthy and bad for you, which is a great shame. Fortunately, this recipe gives you a relatively healthy option, which is also full of protein and goodness. I'm not saying it's weight-trimming but it's certainly not nearly as bad for you as your standard beef burger. Plus, I've added the recipe for a low-calorie slaw, which adds to the flavour. It's a winner and a regular post-workout meal for me!

Ingredients:

Burger:

  • 500g Turkey Mince
  • Olive Oil
  • Grated Parmesan
  • Sea salt
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 120g Chopped Sun-Dried Tomatoes
  • 4 Slices of Mozzarella  
  • Mayonnaise
  • 4 Brioche Buns
  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Basil

Slaw

  • 75g Greek-style natural yoghurt
  • 35g Mayonnaise
  • 150g red cabbage
  • 1 carrot
  • 3 spring onions
  • 1 apple

Method:

  1. In a large bowl combine Mix turkey mince, thinly chopped courgette, parmesan & sun-dried tomatoes and season to taste. Then shape your burgers. 
  1. Preheat a pan over a high heat until hot and cook the burgers on both sides for approx 6-7 minutes. Place a slice of mozzarella on top of each one and cook for a further 3 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the burgers are cooked to your liking. 
  1. For the slaw; Mix the yoghurt, mayonnaise, and 1 tbsp of lemon juice. Add the cabbage, carrot, spring onions and apple to a large bowl and toss together whilst adding the dressing. 
  1. Cut the burger buns in half and lightly toast them. Spread a little mayonnaise, place lettuce & tomatoes onto each base and place a burger on top. Add a dollop of slaw and the bun tops, then – this is the most important bit – press down to squash all those delicious flavours together, and tuck in! (Obviously the order you stack your burger in is up to you but this is the way I like em')
