Turkey Quinoa Kale Burgers

Grill up your own little bit of deliciousness.

Hands on time: 15 minutes // Time from start to finish: 25 minutes

Ingredient List: Ground Turkey (turkey is a super lean meat; use the highest fat content you can find) Yellow Onion, Quinoa, Baby Kale, Olive Oil, Garlic Powder, Sage, Rosemary, Salt

Cook the quinoa for 15-20 minutes according to package instructions.

Mince the onion (I use about 1/4 onion per pound of turkey) and sauté with a splash of olive oil until fragrant and translucent.

Either by hand or in the food processor, mince the kale, about one handful.

Mix the ground turkey with the sautéed onion, minced kale, cooked quinoa, and spices, and gently form into burgers.

The raw burgers can be frozen at this point.

Grill or sear in a cast iron pan with a little olive oil for 4-5 minutes on the first side and 2-3 minutes on the second.

Serve over a green salad or roast veggies.
