ZUCCHINI TURKEY BURGERS

Zucchini Turkey Burgers

As I was posting my recipe for a very veggie turkey dish, I mentioned my recipe for zucchini turkey burgers, and then realized I hadn’t posted this recipe!  It’s definitely worth posting as it’s delicious, easy, and healthy!

The last time I made these was a few months ago.  Whenever Spring hits, I am always in the mood for a good burger, and this recipe didn’t disappoint!  I didn’t eat them with a bun or anything.  They are great alone!

I found the inspiration for this recipe from the following pin on Pinterest:

I did everything the same, except that I used ground turkey instead of chicken.  This recipe calls for coconut aminos, and that is one of the ingredient that I get the most questions about.  I give an explanation of what coconut aminos are and their health benefits in this Kale Salad with Almond Ginger Dressing post.  You can use soy sauce instead of the coconut aminos if you wish.  Here is the recipe for these delectable burgers!
