Turkey & Chickpea Burgers
Turkey & Chickpea Burger (Clean Eating)
1 Can chickepeas - drained and rinsed
1/2 cup roughly chopped scallions
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1 lb ground turkey breast
1 tsp fresh black pepper
1/4 tsp sea salt
olive oil cooking spray
In a food processor, combine chickpeas, scallions, cumin, pepper, salt and Worcestershire sauce. Pulse until smooth.
Transfer chickpea mixture into a large mixing bowl. Add turkey and mix by hand until combined.
Divide turkey-chickpea mixture into four equal portions, shaping each into a three-quarter-inch patty. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat skillet with cooking spray and cook patties for four to six minutes on each side.
We ate this with fresh spinach & tomatoes, a sauce I made (olive oil mayo, dijon mustard & lemon juice), 1/2 baked potato & roasted cauliflower. These were good, but ours were falling apart some - would of been a huge mess on a burger bun!
