TURMERIC & LEMONGRASS MINI TURKEY BURGERS: These burgers have fresh herbs, ginger, lemongrass and bright yellow turmeric. Check out my original post to see how to make Sriracha Peanut Sauce- takes these burgers next level! In bio or here: http://www.eatwhatweeat.com/2017/05/turmeric-and-lemongrass-turkey-burgers/
500g/1 lb ground turkey
1 spring onion
2 Tbsp chopped cilantro/coriander stems
1 Tbsp grated ginger
1 heaped Tbsp grated fresh turmeric, or 2 tsp dried powder
zest and juice of 1 lime
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/3 cup breadcrumbs
Finely chop the onion and lemongrass. Add to a large mixing bowl.
Into the bowl, grate the garlic, turmeric and ginger. Add the turkey, chopped coriander stems, lime zest and juice and salt, pepper and bread crumbs.
Mix well. Use a spoon if you want to avoid hands turning yellow! Shape into small balls using a large melon baller, ice cream scoop or 2 tablespoons. Put the balls into the fridge to firm up for 1 hour.
Heat a hot plate to medium hot. Spray with oil and place oil side down. Flatten down slightly with spatula. Cook for 3-5 minutes on each side, or until no longer pink in the middle.
I bought some amazing fresh turmeric paste from @sanitawellbeing - saves your hands from turning yellow rather than grating yourself.. And MUCH more beneficial to use fresh turmeric than the powder.
