Spicy Turkey Burgers with Tzatziki
Uncooked extra lean ground turkey breast
½ pound(s), lean
1 small, coarsely shredded
1 Tbsp, finely grated
1 Tbsp, fresh, finely chopped
½ small, seeded and minced (wear gloves to prevent irritation)
1 tsp, or vegetable oil
Plain lowfat yogurt
⅓ cup(s), finely diced or sliced seeded peeled cucumber
1 medium clove(s), minced
½ tsp, grated
Fresh lime juice
- To make the burgers, combine the turkey, zucchini, onion, cilantro, and jalapeño pepper in a bowl until well mixed. Shape into 4 patties.
- 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.
