1/2 pound(s) uncooked ground turkey breast, lean
1 small uncooked zucchini, coarsely shredded
1 Tbsp (chopped) uncooked onion(s), finely grated
1 Tbsp cilantro, fresh, finely chopped
1 tsp olive oil, or vegetable oil
1/2 cup(s) greek yogurt
1/3 cup(s) cucumber(s), finely diced or sliced seeded peeled cucumber
2 clove(s) (medium) garlic clove(s), minced
1/2 tsp lime/lemon zest, grated
1 1/2 tsp fresh lime/ lemon juice
To make the burgers, combine the turkey, zucchini, onion, and cilantro in a bowl until well mixed. Shape into 4 patties. (Make sure zucchini drains well to keep burgers together)**Family thought it needed more spice. Added salt and pepper.
Heat 1/2 teaspoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the burgers and cook until golden and cooked through, about 12 minutes, turning the burgers halfway through and adding the remaining 1/2 teaspoon oil to the pan after turning them.
Meanwhile, to make the tzaziki sauce, stir together the yogurt, cucumber, garlic, lime zest, and juice in a small bowl. Serve with the burgers. Yields 2 burgers and generous 1/3 cup sauce per serving. (May want to add dill too)
Tzatziki is a Greek yogurt sauce that gained popularity in the seventies. It is a perfect low-fat, yet creamy, foil to these zesty burgers.
Served it with iceburge lettuce and grilled onions. We all loved it. Son put it on pita bread. However, the whole family loved this one especially the Tzatziki sauce. 🙂 Hope you like.
**Original recipe had 1/2 small jalapeño pepper(s), seeded and minced (wear gloves to prevent irritation). I removed it to fit our allowed food list here.
