JoyFinalCoverHere’s a kid favorite with a nutritionist’s special touch: I add frozen chopped spinach (so convenient!) right into the burgers for a huge blast of vitamins and minerals.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 6 Servings
  • 1.25 pounds lean ground turkey (at least 90% lean)
  • 10 ounces frozen, chopped spinach (thawed and drained)
  • 1 packet low-sodium taco seasoning mix

In a large bowl, use both hands to mix together the ground turkey, spinach, and taco seasoning until blended. Divide the burger mixture to form six patties.

Preheat a large skillet liberally coated with oil spray over medium-high heat (or preheat a grill pan or outdoor grill). Add the burgers and cook about 5 minutes per side, or until burgers are no longer pink in the center.

Serving suggestion: Serve burgers on whole wheat buns with lettuce, sliced tomato and onion, and optional ketchup, mustard and/or salsa. Individuals with type 2 diabetes can enjoy the burger on ½ bun to reduce the carbohydrate count.
