A tasty healthier burger that is in our family meal rotation. Serve on whole wheat bun. Top with romaine lettuce and ranch dressing. I also serve burgers with a nice healthy vegetable mix.

Thanks for the reviews. The reason I use the organic cilantro and garlic paste is that I find it binds better to ground turkey. Plus it is a prep time saver. Read More

Both my husband and I loved this recipe. We used cilantro instead of cilantro paste. We used minced garlic instead of garlic paste. We will definitely make this recipe again. Read More

Really good! I didn't have any limes so I left that out and no ginger but used about an 1/8 tsp of pumpkin pie spice. I used fresh garlic and cilantro. I added an egg and 1/4 c bread crumbs just to be sure they wouldn't crumble apart. I got 5 patties out of 1 lb. of ground turkey. Will def. make these again. Read More

AMAZING!!! Even my husband that doesn't care for cilantro liked them! I didn't have cilantro or garlic paste so I used 1/4 cup of fresh chopped cilantro and 1 1/2tsp of minced garlic. I didn't have any limes so omitted that. I also added one chopped green onion and a flax egg (1tbsp ground flaxseed & 3tbsp water) for binding. Will definitely be making these again! Read More

I didn't add any salt to it (avoiding it) or soy sauce & my only fear was that the burger would break on the skillet BUT it didn't?? It was tasty & not dry. It crumbled in my mouth. Wasn't chewy. Cooked it on medium heat for 5 mins each side. Added cooking spray each time I flipped it so that it does not stick to the skillet. I added some Dry spices to flavor it. Will make it again. Read More

I would rate it 4.5 stars. Mine fell apart. I'm sure it's operator error. But next time I will add an egg. Read More
