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!

- In a large bowl combine Mix turkey mince, thinly chopped courgette, parmesan & sun-dried tomatoes and season to taste. Then shape your burgers.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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')
