Thai Turkey Burgers
Serves: 4
  • For the burgers:
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 2 green onions, sliced thinly
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro or parsley, chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • Pinch of salt and pepper
  • 1-2 tsp coconut oil
  • For the slaw:
  • 2 large carrots, shredded (about 2 cups)
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2-3 tbsp almond or nut butter of your choice
  • 2 tbsp gluten-free tamari or coconut aminos
  • Head of Boston lettuce or large romaine leaves
  1. Combine all burger ingredients except coconut oil in a large bowl and mix with a wooden spoon or your clean hands. Divide mixture into 4 portions. Form the patties and set aside.
  2. Stove-top directions: Over medium heat, ideally on a grill pan (a regular skillet will do, too), cook patties in coconut oil until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side. Remove from heat and let rest for a couple minutes.
  3. As burgers cook, combine all slaw ingredients and set aside.
  4. Place patties in whole lettuce leaves and spoon slaw on top to serve.
Feel free to add shredded cabbage to your slaw as well.
Adjust the almond butter to your taste. The dressing will be creamier with more almond butter.
