Satisfying suppers: Lean turkey burgers on Portobello buns

By Healthy Magazine
Swap a carby bread bun for Portobello mushroom to make these skinny turkey burgers - genius!

With lean turkey and a Portobello mushroom bun, Julie Daniluk’s healthy twist on a family favourite tastes great and can even help beat inflammation


Makes 6 burgers
12 portobello mushrooms
1 tbsp coconut vinegar
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
450g ground turkey
65g grated sweet potato
1 egg or flax or chia substitute (mix 1 tbsp ground flax or chia with 3 tbsp water till it takes on an egg white texture)
3 spring onions, finely chopped
1 tbsp grainy mustard
½ tsp pink rock salt
½ tsp ground ginger
1 tbsp tahini
1 tsp nutritional yeast

Preheat oven to 180ºC/160ºC fan/gas mark 4. Snap stems off mushrooms and scrape gills off underside. Place upside down on baking sheet and drizzle with oil and vinegar. Bake for 30 mins.

2 To make burgers, mix remaining ingredients and form into patties, half- inch thick. Bake alongside mushrooms for 10 minutes each side.

3 Prepare as burgers, using the mushrooms instead of bread buns.
