Anyone else looking for a burger to grill this Memorial Day weekend? Here is a great (heart-healthy) burger packed with flavor (and some veggies).

I wanted to sneak some veggies into these burgers. I had gotten some large zucchini’s at Trader Joes and used the vegettini to get nice fine strands of zucchini. I drained the excess water using a paper towel and chopped 1/4 of an onion and threw it in with the turkey, adding a spoonful of minced garlic, and sprinkling some garlic salt, pepper and a little red pepper. So easy!

Ingredients & Directions:
1lb 93% lean turkey
1 large zucchini, spiraled in vegettini
1/4 sweet onion, chopped into small pieces
spoonful of minced garlic
season with garlic salt, pepper and red pepper to your liking

1) Mix all ingredients in large bowl
2) Form into even size patties, around 6
3) Spray pan with non-stick spray, heating turkey patties until cooked through. Be careful to not overcook as turkey tends to dry out quickly but it can take a while for them to cook through. Internal temperatures should reach 165.

I served these with avocado, lettuce and dijon mustard on the buns and roasted asparagus.
