What on earth is a chickpea spinach turkey burger? Well it’s exactly how it sounds! A little bit of spinach, a little bit of chickpeas and part turkey burger. For a completely vegetarian option, you can view the original recipe here, which only uses chickpeas and I recommend using the whole egg, not just the white.
I had some ground turkey hanging out in the fridge and since I am trying to cut down my meat intake, I didn’t want to have a turkey burger straight up. And you remember I said that I had extra chickpeas since I made DAMY Health’s chocolate cake batter dip. You should also remember I did a post the other day about wanting to try out some of the chickpea recipes I found on Eating Well. You do remember, right?
In any event, I bring to you a mesh of things that created the spinach chickpea turkey burger. Feel free to experiment with your own favorite spices and herbs. This burger has tons of protein and fiber and kept me full for hours! Definitely going to be a good to have on my very long, exhausting days. Enjoy!
