    These are delicious! Cilantro is an all-around health supportive herb that aids in the detoxification in the body, especially in heavy metals. Or perhaps a more apropos timing for a post-holiday detox! 🙂 Enjoy~

    Cilantro Scented Turkey Burgers

    2 Tbsp sesame oil
    1 medium onion, diced small
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    2 Tbsp tamari (wheat-free soy sauce)
    1 tsp toasted sesame oil
    3 scallions, minced
    1/2 cup cilantro, minced
    1 1/2 lbs ground turkey
    1 large egg white, lightly beaten or tapioca flour or arrowroot can also be used
    1 1/2 Tbsp butter, or non-dairy alternative of your choice
    1 package sprouts, (alfalfa, broccoli, sunflower, radish, etc. )

    1. Heat the sesame oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, and ginger; saute over medium heat until onions are tender and translucent, about 5 minutes. Season with tamari and toasted sesame oil, stir to combine and remove from heat to cool in a large bowl.

    2. Combine ground turkey, scallions, cilantro in a medium bowl and mix, add egg white (or other binder). Using your hands, mix gently to combine. You can also add some love at this point too if you so desire :-). Shape into 1/2 inch thick patties about 3 inches in diameter. If the mixture is wet, add tapioca flour or arrowroot, a little at a time.

    3. Place a heavy skillet over medium heat and add the butter or non-dairy alternative or your choice (Earth Balance is a personal favorite of mine, soy-free version). When it begins to bubble, add patties and cook for about 3 minutes on each side, turning only once. Do not press (all the good juices, flow out then; making them dry).

    4. Check if the burgers are done by inserting the tip of a knife into the center of one of the patties.

    5. Bon Apetit’ and I like to serve them with Raw Almond Mayo, Teriyaki Mustard & Sprouts. They would go great with our Homemade Healthy Fries for Your Little Fries.
