The quintessential summer food

Burger of course! Was there truly any doubt in your mind. Quick, easy to cook on the BBQ on a hot day, and always yummy in your tummy. These ones were even healthy, shocking I know, because we used ground turkey instead of ground beef! They left our taste buds extremely happy too!

Turkey burgers with peanut sauce (From Eat Shrink and be merry)
  • 1/2 bottled peanut sauce (light if possible)
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp grated lemon zest
  • 1 tsp grated ginger root
  • 500g ground turkey
  • 1 cup fresh whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1/4 minced green onions
  • 2 tbsp minced cilantro
  • 1 egg
  • salt and pepper
  • Buns of choice
Combine peanut sauce, sesame oil, soy sauce, lemon zest and ginger root in small bowl, mix and put aside

In large bowl combine turkey, bread crumbs, onion, cilantro, egg, salt and pepper and 3 tbsp of sauce. Mix and form into patties, and refrigerate until ready to cook.

Preheat bbq, grilling for about 5 minutes per side or until no longer pink. During last 2 minutes of cooking brush burger with reserved sauce.

Sever on toasted buns, with favorite toppings. We just added lettuce and tomato, really they had so much flavor you don't need anything else.
