Thai Turkey Burgers with Broccoli Slaw

Jessie and I did another week-long menu swap - so fun!  Trying the recipes she sent was even more fun than picking out the ones to send her.  This week, each post will be one of the recipes she sent for me to make.

I started with these burgers  which I was really excited about.  In the end, we didn't get to eat the burgers with the slaw, but topped them with some chard that I spiced up and sautéed.  It worked even though I was disappointed that I could not find any slaw or even raw cabbage.  But the flavor of the burgers was fantastic and everyone enjoyed them.

Served with Sesame-Ginger Asparagus - delicious!

1/2 cup of bread crumbs
1 egg
1 lb of ground turkey or chicken
1 carrot, shredded
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp ginger, grated
1 tsp chili paste (I used sweet chili sauce)
2 Tbsp cilantro, finely chopped
2 scallions, finely diced
juice of 1 lime
1 tsp of lime zest
1 tsp curry powder 
Salt and pepper

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat for 15 minutes.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix to combine. Form ground turkey mixture into patties.  

Grill - flipping once - for about 8 to 12 minutes, checking to make sure they are properly done before serving.  Serve with broccoli slaw as a side or on top with toasted buns.

Broccoli slaw
1 bag broccoli slaw fixins
1/4 cup mayo
juice of 1 lime
bunch of cilantro
1 tbsp chili paste
1 teas of sesame oil
salt and pepper

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest 20 minutes so that the flavors mingle before serving.
