Ginger Turkey Burgers

Fresh ginger provides the optimum flavor because the oils are released when the dish is being made. Mushroom add texture to the ground turkey and lend their own meatiness to these patties. These can be served over shirataki noodles or spinach greens for a low-carb delicacy.

  • 1 1/4 pounds extra-lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 3 ounces shiitake mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 2" piece of ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

In a large bowl, combine the turkey, onion, mushroom, ginger, garlic, and soy sauce. With clean heads, gently mix until thoroughly combined. Form into 6 patties.

Heat a nonstick grill pan over medium-high heat. Cook patties for 5 minutes on each side, or until a thermometer inserted in the center of each patty registers 165°F.
