Triple-Threat Superfood Turkey and Sweet Potato Burger with Walnuts and Spinach


  • 1 C chopped red onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 C chopped spinach (or kale greens) packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 T flax meal
  • 1 T ground coriander
  • 1 t ground ginger
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 450 g pkg ground turkey or chicken
  • 1 C cooked sweet potato
  • 1/4 C chopped walnuts (toasted optional)

Mix all ingredients together and make into patties OR you can use 1 T extra virgin olive oil to a frying pan and cook up the onion and garlic for 3 mins and then add the spinach or kale and cook till it wilts (about 2 mins), cool slightly and then add to the burger mixture.  Grill with cooking spray and bbq burgers with the lid closed until cooked through, about 4-6 mins pr side.  Serve with greek yogurt mixed with 1 T curry powder and top off with slices of avocado.

I eat these burgers on top of a bed of lettuce, sprouts and 1 T sunflower or pumpkin seeds (no bun).
