Diabetic Friendly Recipe
No meat in these wholesome Vegetable Filled Burgers that turn out some darned good burgers made with vegetables.
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup finely shredded carrots
1/4 cup finely sliced green onion
1/4 cup soft whole wheat bread crumbs
1/4 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning, crushed
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
Dash black pepper
3/4 pound lean ground turkey or chicken
1/4 cup Dijon style mustard
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
4 hamburger buns, (whole wheat or white) split and toasted
Shredded or thinly sliced zucchini (optional)
Sliced tomato (optional)
Curry mustard (optional)
Stir together milk, carrot, green onion, bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, garlic salt, and pepper in a medium mixing bowl. Add ground turkey; mix well. Shape the mixture into four 1/2-inch-thick patties. Lightly grease the grill rack.
For a charcoal grill, place patties on the greased grill rack directly over medium-hot coals. Grill, uncovered, about 12 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the side of a patty registers 165-degrees, turning once.
For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium-hot. Place patties on grill rack; cover and grill patties as directed in second step.
Meanwhile, stir together mustard and curry powder.
Serve patties on buns topped, if desired, with lettuce leaves, zucchini, sliced tomato, and curry mustard mixture.
