These burgers are high in protein, low in fat, and lick-your-lips delicious! Trading in an egg for egg whites and bread crumbs for quinoa flakes cleans up this lean approach to your everyday burger. Lightly adapted from The Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook
  • 1 lb organic lean ground turkey
  • ½ cup red onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon egg white, lightly beaten
  • ½ cup quinoa flakes or almond flour
  • 2 tablespoon fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoon fresh oregano
  • 2 tablespoon fresh basil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ¾ teaspoon herbamare
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  1. In a large bowl, lightly beat egg white.
  2. Add all ingredients except the turkey and mix well with your hands, or a spoon until the quinoa flakes are coated.
  3. Add turkey and mash with your hands until combined. Form into 5-6 patties and throw them on the outdoor grill, indoor grill, or in the oven at 350F for 45 minutes. If you have a meat thermometer, you want to reach an internal temperature of 165F.
Serve with spinach, pickles and homemade barbecue sauce, all wrapped in arice tortilla with creamy vegan coleslaw with bean mayo.
