Coriander Ginger Turkey Burgers
Prep Time:15 minutes
Cooking Time:15 minutes
Ground turkey is a lean meat and is the perfect foil for plenty of flavour. Feel free to serve these patties on bun bottoms, but they are just as tasty on their own. If turkey is unavailable you can use chicken.
- 1 egg white, lightly beaten
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) reduced sodium soy sauce
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) minced fresh ginger
- 1/3 cup (75 mL) chopped fresh coriander
- 1/2 cup (125 mL) finely crushed whole-wheat crackers or dry breadcrumbs
- ¼ tsp (1 mL) freshly ground black pepper
- 1 lb (454 g) lean ground turkey
1.In large bowl, whisk together egg and soy sauce. Stir in onions, garlic, ginger, coriander, crackers and pepper.
2.Add turkey and using hands, mix turkey into egg mixture until evenly distributed. Shape into 5 patties about ½ inch (1 cm) thick.
3.Place patties in large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat; cover and cook for about 15 minutes, turning once or until no longer pink inside.
Tip: These burgers are best cooked in a nonstick skillet or grill pan for best results.
