Primavera Turkey Burgers

Turkey Burgers
I totally have burger fear. Usually it is the fear of dry burgers but when it comes to poultry it is also fear of killing people. I actually planned to make a homemade veggie burger last night but then I went to Whole Foods. My first experience at Whole Foods, and really I couldn’t just buy a can of beans and walk away could I?

So when I saw how beautiful the meats were I changed to make turkey burgers. (I was having a massive burger craving but still wanted something healthy.) They turned out really well and actually juicy which I was quite proud of. I think this recipe would make some really yummy meatballs so I will have to try that next time.

As for my Whole Foods experience I really liked it, it was wildly expensive but they just had such a good selection on everything. The only disappointment was that the fresh almond butter grinder was out of order :(. I guess I will need to go back. I managed not to buy anything too outrageous except for a spaghetti squash. Has anyone else accidentally spent $7 on an organic spaghetti squash? Yikes.

(makes 4 small or 6 large burgers)

1.5lbs ground turkey (I used half breast and half thigh meat)
1t salt
lots of pepper
2T grated carrots
2 scallions, minced
1/4C cooked, chopped spinach
cooking spray

Combine all above ingredients and form into burgers. Store in fridge until ready. Heat a non-stick skillet to medium heat. Cook about 7-8 minutes per side. I used a thermometer to check that they were done.

I served these with mayo, mashed avocado and tomatoes on whole wheat buns.[/print_this]
