Tzatziki turkey burgers
- February 2005
- Serves 4 people
- Ready in 30 minutes
A low-fat burger recipe – turkey mince is one of the leanest meats around; alternatively, use lean chicken mince.
- 2.3g (0.4g saturated)
- 39.8g (8.5g sugar)
- 1 large red onion
- 12 cherry tomatoes, halved
- Large handful chopped fresh coriander
- 450g turkey mince, or you can use lean chicken, lamb or pork mince
- 2 tbsp sweet chilli dipping sauce
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1/4 cucumber
- 150g carton 0% fat Greek yogurt
- Small handful chopped fresh mint
- Tabasco sauce, to taste
- 4 crusty burger buns, toasted
- Thinly slice a quarter of the onion and mix with the tomatoes and half the coriander. Season and set aside.
- Coarsely grate the remaining onion and mix well with the turkey mince, sweet chilli sauce, soy sauce, remaining coriander and plenty of black pepper. Form into 4 burgers, which are slightly larger than the burger buns. (The mixture will be quite wet, but, when cooked, will give you moist, juicy burgers.)
- Preheat the grill to hot. Arrange the burgers on a foil-lined grill pan and grill for 6 minutes on each side.
- Meanwhile, halve the cucumber lengthways, scoop out the seeds with a teaspoon and discard. Dice and mix with the yogurt, mint, seasoning and Tabasco.
- Grill the burger buns until toasted. Arrange a burger on each toasted bun base, top with a spoonful of tzatziki, then tomato salad and finally the burger tops to serve.
