Makes 8 burger patties

 One serving = 1 turkey burger patty

startIngredients:

450g lean turkey mince

80g porridge oats

1 garlic clove (minced)

70g feta cheese

pepper (no need for salt)

2 egg whites

200g spinach

20g of Jalapeños – you can add as much as you like if you’re a fan of spicy food or just leave them out of the recipe if you’re not.

Method:

  • Chop spinach into small pieces and remove any stalks as these will stick out of your burger patties and make them harder to form.
  • Once the spinach is chopped, combine all ingredients into a bowl and mix together with a fork or with clean hands.

prep

  • Start to shape the burger patties by scooping up a handful of the mixture to form a ball and then pressing them flat. Don’t worry if they look a bit messy, they will combine when cooked.

patties

  • To cook the burgers, I used a George Forman for about 7minutes. You can use your oven grill if you don’t have a George Forman but it might take a little longer.
  • Serve immediately on a whole-wheat bun or you can chop into pieces and have a burger bowl (salad).
  • I had mine in a round whole-wheat pitta with tomato relish and lettuce with spinach, rocket, 50g beetroot and 70g sweet corn on the side (337kcal; 52g carbs, 6g fat and 26g protein).
