My [Healthy] Addiction

It’s no secret that I’m completely addicted to Pinterest; mostly for recipes, but I do pin other things like workouts, house inspiration [you know, for when we find a grown up house], etc. Lindsay is hosting her third Pin It Party and there was no question that I’d be hopping on the bandwagon!

Pin It Party The Lean Green Bean

Check out my 5 posts I’d love to see on Pinterest!

With all things pumpkin popping up, I thought this would be the perfect time to re-introduce a PSL favorite.

Not just for passover! 🙂

Grilling season isn’t over yet!

I love this chicken because it’s just as tasty made into a creamy salad!

And speaking of salads, this one is great on anything.

Hope you enjoy these recipes as much as I do. And don’t forget to check out the whole party for some more great pinspiration!

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.
