Foodie Friday: Turkey Quinoa Burgers

It’s been a tough week and I know many people are asking about ways to help those affected by the events in Boston. So first and foremost, I wanted to provide a few links to ways that you can help.

If there are any other links or ways to help that you may know of, please feel free to share!

In the meantime, I wanted to also share with you a recipe that I whipped up when I realized I had a ton of quinoa to use up. And I really wanted to use our new grill pan..

Turkey Quinoa Burgers

Makes 8 burgers

Turkey Quinoa Burgers | Barr & Table

– 1¼ lbs 99% extra lean ground turkey- 1¼ cups quinoa; cooked
– ¼ cup rolled oats
– 4 stalks green onion; chopped
– 3 cloves garlic; minced
– 1 tsp fresh ginger; minced
– 1 tbsp chili garlic sauce
– 1 tbsp srirachi
– 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
– 1 tsp tahini
– 1 tbsp lite soy sauce
– 1 lime; juiced
– 1 tbsp sesame seeds
– 1 egg

In a large bowl, mix all ingredients until well combined. Shape 8 patties, place on a greased plate or sheet pan and refrigerate for 1-2 hours. This will help them hold their shape while cooking.

Preheat a grill pan over medium heat and remove patties from the fridge. Lightly coat the pan with olive oil and place burgers in the pan. Cook on one side about 5 minutes and flip. The burgers should have nice, dark grill lines on them. Cook on the other side for another 3-5 minutes until fully cooked through.

Remove from pan and let rest a minute. Serve as you wish! I love putting a burger on top of my salads with avocado.
