Turkey Burgers

I suddenly realised I hadn’t posted a recipe in a fair while so tonight I decided to share my new favourite recipe with you, yes it’s a simple one but sometimes those are the best!

Burgers are such an indulgent comfort food but the traditional option is usually packed with bad fats and loads of extra calories – enough to derail any healthy lifestyle. Instead of giving them up however, I like to make a healthy alternative which is just as delicious – you can put in any herbs and spices you like but this is my personal favourite and is so simple to make!

 

Ingredients (serves 2-3)

500g Turkey Mince

Small red onion, chopped

2 Cloves of garlic, finely chopped

Juice of half a lime

Salt and Pepper

 

Method:

  1. Simply mix all of the ingredients together, then form into roughly 6 patties
  2. Heat a little coconut or avocado oil in a pan and fry off the burgers – I gave them about 5-7 minutes on each side, but just until they are cooked through

(P.S. I made the burgers then covered half and put them in the fridge until the next day – the second time round tasted even better so if you have time, pop the burgers into the fridge before cooking for all the flavours to infuse!)
