  1. 1 lb / 453 gr organic ground turkey
  2. 1 large zucchini, grated
  3. 2 scallions, thinly chopped
  4. 1 free-range organic egg
  5. 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  6. 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  7. 1 garlic clove, minced
  8. 1 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  9. ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  10. ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  11. ½ teaspoon ground cumin (optional)
Lemon Yogurt Sauce
  1. 1 container (7 oz / 198 gr) plain Greek yogurt
  2. Zest of one lemon
  3. Juice of one lemon
  4. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  5. ½ teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  6. ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  7. Chopped scallions for garnish
  1. In a small bowl combine all sauce ingredients, stir well and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine all burger ingredients and with dampened hands shape into burgers (you can also make meatballs if feel like.)
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in large skillet over medium-high heat and cook burgers, in batches, until golden brown, about 6 to 7 minutes per side (it really depends on the size of your burgers.)
  4. Serve warm with lemon yogurt sauce on the side.
  1. One burger (undressed) yields about 117 calories, 7 grams of fat, 1 gram of carbs and 13 grams of protein.
