  • 1lb organic ground turkey
  • 1 medium zucchini grated
  • 1 small red onions minced

  1. Use a box grater to grate the zucchini, super fine.

  2. Squeeze ALL the moisture from the zucchini with paper towels.

  3. In a large bowl, combine ground turkey, zucchini, cilantro, garlic, onion, oil, salt and pepper. Mix well.

  4. Make 5 equal patties, not too thick so they cook in the center.

  5. Grill approximately 18-20 minutes, turning once and make sure the center is cooked to measure 165°F with a meat thermometer.


  • Portobello MushroomCover the Portobello mushroom tops with oil, salt and pepper. Grill for about 5 minutes on each side. Use the mushroom tops as the bun for your burger.

  • Baby Collard GreensWrap the burger in steamed baby collard green leaves.

  • Baby SpinachServe on a bed of baby spinach and sliced avocados drizzled with a homemade vinegrette.

  • Or, Serve with steamed broccoli.

This is a great way to increase your vegetable intake and the zucchini makes the burger so juicy even the kids will love them!
