Grilled Turkey Vegetable Burger

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 25 min.


2 servings

I was delighted to find this recipe, a healthy version of burgers with little fat, but flavorful ingredients, including carrot, onion and apple. I make these burgers with either ground turkey or chicken.


  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons toasted wheat germ
  • 3 tablespoons salsa
  • 2 tablespoons shredded carrot
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons shredded peeled apple
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 pound ground turkey or chicken
  • 2 hamburger buns, split


  1. In a small bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Crumble turkey over mixture and mix well. Shape into two patties.
  2. Grill, broil or pan-fry for 7-8 minutes on each side or until no longer pink and a thermometer reads 165°. Serve on buns.
