How to make the perfect turkey burger

By Medisys on May 31 2018 | Nutrition & Recipes

These turkey burgers are always a hit because they're so flavourful. It doesn't hurt that they're also low in fat and even have a little fibre. For an additional fibre boost, try serving them in whole wheat pita pockets with sliced tomato, kale, and avocado. On a low carb diet? Try bun-less turkey burgers wrapped in large-leaved greens. There are several kinds of large leaved greens that will work as wraps: Swiss chard, cabbage, or collard greens are great options. Opt for a leaf is larger than your hand (palm to fingertips). You may even want to use a couple different types at a time, layering them before rolling them, for variety! Looking for more meal ideas?
