Wet Your Whistle Turkey Burgers
Enjoy your meat – but feel full with less of it – thanks to the fiber-filling and added water of the chia seeds and vegetables. You can substitute chicken with ground (minced) beef, turkey, or fish as desired.
1 lb ground turkey, minced
1/2 cup cooked brown rice or cooked quinoa
1/2 cup grated carrot
1/2 cup grated zucchini
2 tbsp finely chopped parsley
2-3 tsp black chia seeds
1 tsp sea salt, pepper (or to taste)
Olive or coconut oil (for cooking)
4 tbsp mustard
8 cups mixed lettuces, washed
In a large bowl, mix the chicken, rice, carrot, zucchini, chopped parsley and chia seeds together well, and then form 4 patties. Heat a large frying pan on medium to medium-high heat, add oil and cook patties for about 5 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Reduce heat if browning too quickly. You can also cook on a grill. Let cool. Add two cups lettuce to each bowl. Add one burger atop each bowl of lettuce. Place one tablespoon mustard on side of each bowl. Enjoy.
