There is a local restaurant that I have been going to for years. They are known for some different dishes including a turkey burger made with spinach and topped with artichokes. As much as I love going out, I do know it is not always the healthiest choice. The grease foods are cooked in at restaurants are not good for your digestion system or your stomach.
Last night was a hot night and perfect to grill, so I decided to try making my own version of the turkey burger with spinach in it, and OHMYGOODNESS they were delicious!! Maybe even better than going out- and a lot cheaper! Best of all, they were prepared, with only 6-7 ingredients, and ready to eat in less than a half hour!
2 Garlic scapes- I get my scapes through the CSA we belong to. If you can not find them, you can use one or two fresh garlic cloves, minced.
1/2 yellow onion- quartered
2 handfuls spinach
1 package of lean organic ground Turkey meat (I do not recommend the extra lean meats because they will not hold the same with out a filler such as eggs or bread crumbs.)
dash of pepper
Artichoke hearts- Drained
Provolone cheese- OPTIONAL
Turn BBQ grill on- medium heat.
Place garlic scapes, onion, and spinach in food processor and pulse until ingredients are finely chopped.
Start making patties. I made four- however if making sliders, you can make the patties smaller and get more burgers.
After 12 minutes, burgers are done, and you are ready to indulge!
When you take the time to make your own foods, you know exactly what you body is getting, and that is the best way to nourish yourself!
When you eat for your body, your body will thank you!
