Low Carb Veggie Turkey Burger are juicy and tender and packed with garden fresh vegetables. 20 Minute Meal from Kitchen to Table!
You are just going to love these Low Carb Veggie Turkey Burger as they are packed with flavor from the dash of Italian herbs, garlic and little spice from the paprika. We used the bounty of farmer’s market vegetables such as zucchini, carrots and grated Vidalia sweet onions to take this burger to the next level.
Keeping it Low Carb
To keep this burger lower carb, we decided to serve our Low Carb Veggie Turkey Burger as a lettuce wrap. We topped our burger with avocado and some of our delicious Gingered Onion Gold Beet Refrigerator Pickles. We only used one carrot in the mix to make it colorful but you could swap out with spinach or grated broccoli or cauliflower to make it even lower carb.
We pan fried our Veggie Turkey Burger in a little olive oil but you can also cook on the grill or BBQ outside. It has been so steamy hot lately and our deck gets full sun right around dinner time so sometimes we take the party inside.
Quick and Easy Dinner
Low Carb Veggie Turkey Burger are a snap to throw together and clock in at about 20 minutes from kitchen to table. We used just a hand grater to grate the vegetable but you could save yourself some time and just throw all your vegetables into the food processor and then toss in the ground turkey.
Tips for making Low Carb Veggie Turkey Burgers
The tricks for success is to form your patties and then put them in the freezer for a few minutes (around 30 - 60 minutes) so they hold shape on the grill.
A bonus of making Low Carb Veggie Turkey Burgers as that they are a great make ahead meal. You can add them to lunches for the week and they freeze great. We freeze our little veggie turkey burgers between parchment paper (waxed paper) and then in a tupperware or freezer bag and just take one when we need it. You can freeze them either cooked or raw. Meal planning for Back to School madness just got easier!
