Zucchini Turkey Burgers

The last time I made these was a few months ago, but whenever warmer weather starts to hit, I am always in the mood for a good burger, so out they came again! This recipe doesn’t disappoint! They are perfect with or without a bun (BTW, if you’re looking for a good hamburger bun recipe, check out my gluten free hamburger buns here). Furthermore, the veggies that are added in provide a whole bunch of extra nutrients – score!

Here is the recipe for these delectable burgers!


Ingredients: (makes 4-6 servings)

  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1 cup zucchini, chopped
  • 1 inch piece fresh ginger, chopped
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut aminos (or soy sauce)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp. freshly ground flaxseed (optional)
  • Coconut oil


1.) Put all the ingredients, except the ground turkey and coconut oil, into a food processor. Blend till mixed well.

2.) In a large bowl, combine mixture with the turkey burger, and mix well.

3.) In a frying pan, heat oil over medium heat.  From the mixture, form patties. Cook them for 3 to 4 minutes each side, or until browned and cooked through.

4.) Serve with or without a bun and with your favorite fixings!

Enjoy! 🙂
