Turkey Spinach Burgers

Turkey + Pesto = Perfection!

Yield: 4 Burgers

Instructions

Make the pesto:

In a blender, add the basil, spinach and nuts. Pulse a few times to combine. Add the garlic, salt and pepper and blend. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil while the blender runs on low until well combined. Remove pesto to a bowl, stir in cheese and set aside.

Make the burgers:

Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan. Add the red pepper and onion, and sauté for approximately 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.

In a large bowl, mix together the ground turkey, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cooled red pepper and onions. Shape into 4 burgers and cook on either a grill pan or sauté pan. Just before the burgers are cooked, top with a slice of cheese. Cook until turkey burgers are cooked through and cheese is melted.

Serve the turkey burger on rolls with fresh spinach and pesto.
