turkey burgers

This is a quick and healthy recipe I made up at home.  I initially made this recipe last summer using zucchini in place of the spinach and carrots.  The recipe is straightforward so I took pictures for most of the steps in the process. Each captions has instructions to follow.

I started with 1 cup spinach, .5 cup diced carrot and .5 cup of onion. I sauteed until the carrots were slightly softened. I cooked this with garlic and chipotle powder but any spices you like work great.

To the vegetables I added 1 cup of cooked quinoa.  I let this combination cool before adding the turkey.

I added 1 lb. of ground turkey and formed into 4 large patties.  I think these were all 3/4 burgers but they can definitely be made smaller.

A burger sauce I made by mixing 1 tablespoon horseradish sauce, 1 tablespoon dijon mustard , and a diced up dill pickle spear.

I added a slice of ham and placed on a much too small bun.  I would recommend heftier buns for the size of the patty.

The burger was very enjoyable and the veggies/quiona kept it moist.  I made extra for tonight, I'll continue trying different veggie/spice combinations but this is definitely going to be something I will be revisiting.
