The secret to these flavorful turkey burgers is the aromatic combination of fresh herbs, onion, and garlic mixed with mashed sweet potato and spinach. Filled with extra veggies, this burger makes following AICR’s recommendations to eat more plant foods and less red meat easy to follow. Plus the fresh herbs are loaded with an abundance of phytochemicals that promote good health and may help prevent inflammation.
Microwave sweet potato 4-6 minutes or steam 15 minutes until tender.
While sweet potato is cooking, prepare grill and set heat on medium-high. If broiling, set top rack on second rung (at least 6 inches from broiler) and set heat on broil. Prepare large broiler pan with cooking spray.
In large bowl, mash sweet potato. Add turkey, spinach, onion, garlic, herbs, salt, pepper and oil. Mix together and form 6 patties about 1/2-inch thick.
Grill patties 4-8 minutes on each side or until center is 165 degrees F. If broiling, arrange patties on broiler pan and broil 4-8 minutes on each side or until center is 165 degrees F.
