Thai Curry Turkey Burger with Tzatziki Sauce

turkey burger

Asian fusion at its best. And it’s healthy! I’m keeping new years in mind and all of the resolutions to lose weight (because I need to too).

Thai Curry Turkey Burger

1 pound ground turkey
1 shallot, minced (or small onion)
1/4 cup of plain breadcrumbs
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 tablespoon curry paste or curry powder
salt and pepper

Combine all ingredients and form into 4-5 patties. Coat a pan with olive oil and bring to a medium-high heat. Place the burgers in the pan. Cook the burgers for 7 minutes on each side. Top with tzatziki sauce. Serve on a bun, lettuce (lettuce wraps) or in this case, whole wheat pita. I went an extra mile and added a grilled mushroom cap and snow pea sprouts.

Tzatziki Sauce

1 cup plain lowfat yogurt
1/2 cup finely chopped english (seedless) cucumber
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint and dill
salt and pepper
splash of olive oil and lemon juice

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. That’s it 🙂

    Your tzatsiki, with it’s added lemon zest and fresh mint, sodnus wonderful. I imagine it’s delicious served with some really simple grilled fish or chicken, marinated in olive oil and a little oregano. Thanks for sharing
