Turkey Burger



5 tbsp olive oil

1 cup celery, diced

1 cup scallions, diced

2 green apples, cored and diced

2 lbs ground lean turkey

1/4 cup grated lemon zest

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Multigrain buns, sliced

1 bag fresh spinach



Pour 2 tbsp of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the celery, scallions and apples. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat. Add the turkey, lemon zest, sea salt and pepper. Stir until well combined.


To make the patties, roll 6 turkey balls, about 4 oz each, and form each into a patty. Arrange on a tray, cover and refrigerate.


Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the remaining olive oil to cover the entire bottom. After 2 minutes, reduce the heat to medium and place the patties into the skillet. Season with salt and pepper and cook for 4 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side for 1 minute.
