One statement…this turned out DELICIOUS!!!!  My roommate gave it a two thumbs up and she is currently a Paleo skeptic…I’m still trying to convince her…maybe a few more delicious meals…

Turkey Burgers


  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ red onion, chopped
  • 4 baby carrots, chopped
  • 2 handfuls fresh baby spinach
  • Coconut oil
  • Cumin and chili powder to taste
  • Portobello mushrooms for “buns”
  • Optional toppings: tomato, lettuce, guacamole


Chop onion, garlic, and carrots. Place veggies in large pan over medium low heat with baby spinach with melted coconut oil, stirring frequently until veggies are soft and spinach is wilted. While the veggies are cooking, mix ground turkey (or other ground meat of your choice) with chili powder, cumin, and pepper. Let veggies cool briefly when finished cooking, then add to turkey, mixing well. Form into patties and then cook in skillet or on grill until browned on each side, making sure to cook through. After patties are finished cooking, remove to a plate. Add Portobello mushrooms to pan, adding a little bit of oil if necessary, and cook a few minutes on each side until slight softened and browned. Add your own condiments. I used what I had on hand, tomatoes, guacamole, and lettuce.
