Ingredients You Need

In large mixing bowl, add ground turkey, zucchini, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper. Using your hands, mix well.


Form 6 large turkey burger patties about a size of a medium hand. Flatten them as burgers “jump up” while cooking. Use wet hands to help with stickiness issue.


Stovetop: Preheat non-stick skillet on low-medium heat. Add about 1.5 tbsp of oil to the skillet and swirl around. Place 3 patties in the skillet and cook for 5 minutes per side, flipping once. Repeat with remaining oil and burgers.


Grill: Freeze burgers for 10 minutes prior. Preheat grill on medium and spray with cooking spray. Spray turkey patties on both sides with cooking spray, place on a grill and cook for 6-8 minutes flipping once.


Serve hot and right away is the best. Enjoy the traditional way on a whole grain bun with all the fixins. Or serve "naked" with mashed avocado and store-bought salsa. Or on a bed of greens. The sky is the limit!


Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 5 days or freeze leftovers for up to 3 months.
