The next three blog posts are dedicated to my favorite vegetable – the zucchini. In fact, I’ll be sharing with you three recipes that include zucchini as a core ingredient. Zucchini, simply put, is a wonder vegetable – adding moisture and texture to many savory and sweet recipes. I feel like I’m always stocking up on zucchinis at the grocery store, eating them as a no-carb gluten-free spaghetti substitute, and using them as a moisture infuser in a slew of other dishes.
Today I’d like to share with you a recipe I found at WeightWatchers.com that makes one of the juiciest turkey burgers you’ll ever eat. While ground beef burgers ooze juice, ground turkey doesn’t. In fact, many turkey burgers are dried-out and, well, just ordinary.
Then, when I stumbled upon this recipe for Juicy Turkey Burgers, life was about to change. I could still eat the lean ground turkey in lieu of ground beef, and create a juicy turkey burger my family would eat and truly enjoy! Turns out that the zucchini acts as a moisture-enhancer, making these burgers juicy, delicious, and low-calorie. Also, I didn’t have to make ANY changes to this recipe to make it gluten-free. It’s naturally gluten-free – and that makes it good for you!
Consider using your food processor to mince the onion and zucchini into tiny bits. (I used my Manual Food Processor from Pampered Chef. It’s small and I have never regretted purchasing this!) Also, if you haven’t already, invest in a grill pan like this one. The grill pan leaves beautiful grill marks and captures fat drippings so your food doesn’t wallow in fat as it cooks. Plus, no need to go outside to light up the grill when indoor grilling is much easier!
As always, make sure all your ingredients are gluten-free!
