Turkey Burgers and Beetroot Relish

Who says the burger has to be an unhealthy indulgence? Turn that frown upside town when you pass by your formerly-favourite greasy spoon burger joint, and sink your teeth into this amazingly healthy alternative, that still tastes great!

Careful – your mouth is watering.


For The Relish:

  • 250g cooked peeled beetroot (not in vinegar), finely diced
  • 1 small red onion , finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • Little Gem lettuce , to serve
  • Wholemeal pitta bread , to serve

Tip turkey into a bowl with the thyme. Finely grate in the zest from the lemon and add a little seasoning. Use your hands to mix the ingredients well, then shape into 4 patties. Chill until ready to cook. Can be frozen for up to 1 month.
Mix the beetroot with the juice from ½ the lemon, onion, parsley, oil and mustard. Grill, griddle or barbecue the burgers for about 6 mins each side and serve with the beetroot relish, lettuce and pitta breads.
TIP: These turkey burgers freeze well, so why not make double and freeze for another time?
