1 onion, cut into 1/4-inch dice
Morton lite salt
2 cloves garlic, smashed and finely chopped
1 pounds ground turkey
1/8 cup lite soy sauce
1 tablespoon siracha, optional
1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated (3 tsp)
One 8-ounce can water chestnuts, drained and
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
4 slimwich buns
Optional Garnishes(calories not included):
4 slices Fat Free Cheddar
1/4 cup lite mayo mixed with 2 tsp siracha
4 slices beefsteak tomatoes
4 slices raw red onion
For the burgers: Coat a large saute pan with cooking spray. Add the onions, season with salt and bring to a medium heat. Cook the onions until they are soft and very aromatic, 7 to 8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Turn off the heat and let cool.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the turkey, soy sauce, siracha, ginger, water chestnuts, cilantro and the cooked onions and garlic. (Reserve the onion pan to cook the burgers in later.) Add one-quarter to one-half cup water; this will help the burgers stay nice and moist. Using your hands, squish everything together until they are really well combined.
Make and cook a little tester patty to be sure that the turkey is really well seasoned. Re-season if needed. If the burger is missing salt add more soy or just give a little sprinkey dink of salt.
When the burger mix is seasoned appropriately, form the mix into 4 equal size patties.
Coat the saute pan with cooking spray and bring to a medium-high heat. Place the burgers in the pan. Be sure not to crowd the pan, if you need to work in batches go ahead! Cook the burgers for 5 to 6 minutes on each side. Place the cheese, if using, on the burger and cook for 1 more minute.
Toast the buns in a broiler or toaster. Schmear each side of the bun lightly with the siracho mayo. Put a burger on each of the bottom buns and top each burger with tomato, onion and lettuce. Close up each burger, give each one a little squish and eat em' up!
Beverage Pairing Suggestion: Light Lager
