Grilled Spiced Turkey Burger



U.S. Metric Ingredients
6 oz 180 g Onion, chopped fine
1 tbsp 15 mL Vegetable oil
3 lb 1.5 kg Ground turkey
1 tbsp 15 mL Salt
1 tbsp 15 mL Curry powder
tsp 7 mL Grated lemon zest
½ tsp 2 mL Pepper
¼ tsp 1 mL Cinnamon
½ tsp 2 mL Ground coriander
¼ tsp 1 mL Ground cumin
¼ tsp 1 mL Ground cardamom
4 fl oz 125 mL Water
as desired as desired Tomato Raisin Chutney or other chutney as desired
as desired as desired Microgreens or cilantro leaves



  1. Sweat the onions in the oil until soft. Cool completely.
  2. Combine the onions, turkey, salt, spices, and water in a bowl. Toss gently until uniformly mixed.
  3. Divide the mixture into 5-oz (150-g) portions (or as desired). Form each portion into a thick patty.
  4. Grill or broil until just well done, but avoid overcooking, which makes the burger dry.
  5. Plate the burgers. Top each with a spoonful of chutney (or place the chutney on the side) and a small mound of greens. Alternatively, serve the burger and garnish as a sandwich on whole-grain bread.
