This is not your typical turkey burger! The added greek-inspired ingredients keep the burger moist and give it great flavors. Plus, bonus, you get some veggies in there!
Tzatziki is a refreshing cucumber yogurt dip. I often buy a little container from my local Greek restaurant because theirs is insanely good (as is their fresh pita bread!). But it is quite easy to make your own. My favorite recipe is here: to be honest, I don't even bother to drain the yogurt overnight and it's still perfectly creamy and yummy.
Makes 4 burgers
- 1 lb lean ground turkey = 450 g de viande de dinde hachée
- ½ cup chopped baby spinach = une poignée de jeunes pousses d'épinards, coupées
- ⅓ cup crumbled feta cheese = 45 g de feta émiettée
- 1 roasted red pepper, chopped = 1 poivron rouge roti, coupé en morceaux
- ½ teaspoon dried oregano leaves = ½ cuillère à café d'origan séché
- 1 teaspoon olive oil = 1 cuillère à café d'huile d'olive
- Salt & pepper = sel et poivre
- 4 tablespoons tzatziki sauce = 4 cuillère à soupe de tzaziki
- 1 small cucumber, sliced = un petit concombre, coupé en tranches
- 4 whole wheat burger buns = 4 pains à hamburger, au blé complet
Combine ground turkey, spinach, feta, red pepper, oregano, salt & pepper, and olive oil in a bowl. Divide into fourths and form 4 patties.
Grill burgers and transfer to clean platter.
Top each burger with 1 tablespoon of tzatziki and a few slices of cucumber. Serve on whole wheat buns. Enjoy!
