1/8 tsp garlic powder

1/2 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
2 tbsp salsa or Pico de Gallo with 90mg sodium or less per 2-tbsp serving
4 large (or 2 extra-large) iceberg or butter lettuce leaves
1 large tomato slice

1. To make the sauce, in a small bowl, combine yogurt, mustard, and relish. Mix well.

 

2. In a medium bowl, combine turkey, onion, egg whites/substitute, garlic powder, and pepper. Evenly form into a 4-inch wide patty.

 

3. Bring a grill pan (or skillet) sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Cook patty for 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through.

 

4. Meanwhile, combine black beans with salsa/pico de gallo in a small microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave for 1 minute, or until hot. Mix well.

 

5. Stack two large lettuce leaves, and place tomato in the center (or stack two extra-large leaves, and place tomato over one half). Top with turkey patty and sauce, and finish with the remaining two large lettuce leaves (or wrap the extra-large leaves around the filling).

 

6. Serve with black beans.
