Delicious Turkey and Spinach Burger

Submitted by: CHUNK2SKINNY

Introduction

I found this recipe on Kaiser Permanente's Healthy cookbook online. I made it for the first time today and LOVED it! These burgers are the PERFECT summer lunch when I really want a burger. I paired the burger patty with some caramelized onions and a whole wheat pita for a delicious lunch. I found this recipe on Kaiser Permanente's Healthy cookbook online.

Ingredients

    1½ pounds ground turkey or beef (or a mixture of both)
    10 ounces baby spinach leaves
    zest of one lemon
    3 garlic cloves, minced
    ½ tsp. salt
    ¼ tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Fire up the grill. Sauté the spinach in olive oil until it wilts. In a large bowl, mix the turkey or beef, spinach, lemon zest, garlic, salt, and pepper. You can make healthier quarter pounders using a half-cup measuring cup to get an equal amount per burger and flattening them on waxed paper. Grill the burgers until done.

Serving Size: makes about 6 burger patties
