Turkey Burgers and Beetroot Relish

Healthy alternative, that still tastes great!

Careful – your mouth is watering.

Step 1: 

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.

Step 2: 

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?
