Mediterranean Turkey Burgers

Makes 4-5 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound 98% fat-free organic ground turkey
  • Dried organic unsweetened cranberries
  • 3 Tbsp. fat free feta cheese
  • Fresh crushed garlic
  • 1/4 cup spinach
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil

Directions:

Divide ground turkey into 4-5 patties. Next, add in cranberries, feta, garlic, spinach, salt, and pepper to each patty with your hands. Combine egg whites and olive oil in a separate bowl. Dip patties into the egg mixture. Grill over medium heat for about 4 minutes on each side, or until fully cooked.

Chickpea Patties

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups garbanzo beans, mashed
  • 1/4 cup carrot, grated
  • 1/2 onion, minced
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. turmeric

Directions

Thoroughly mix ingredients together in a bowl. If the mixture is too crumbly, add water slowly (no more than 1 Tbsp. at a time) until it reaches a smooth yet firm consistency. Form the mixture into 4 burger-sized patties. Grill for about 3 minutes on each side or place in a greased skillet (we like using organic cooking spray or a little bit of grapeseed oil) and cook until evenly browned.

Serve with a whole wheat bun or on portobello mushrooms with your favorite healthy condiments.

Three Bean Salad

This salad is one of my all time favorite recipes. It’s SO EASY but will blow your taste buds away with flavor! You literally just throw all of the ingredients into a bowl, toss together, and BOOM! You’ve got yourself a yummy meal! You can top this over kale, quinoa, or just eat on its own!
Plus, it tastes better after a few hours of marinating, making it the perfect dish for a picnic potluck! Check out the recipe below!

Combine all of the below ingredients in a bowl. Mix and it’s ready to go! This recipe makes 3 servings. ;)
