Feed the Fam: Quinoa Turkey Burgers with Feta and Spinach

This entry is part 9 of 26 in the series Feed the Fam

These turkey burgers are delicious and pretty inexpensive to make. I make mine Greek style by adding feta and topping them with tzatziki, but if you aren’t into those flavors you could easily omit the feta and tzatziki.

Turkey Burgers

1/4 cup quinoa
1 clove garlic, minced
2 cups of fresh spinach, cooked and drained (get as much water out as you can)
1 lb ground turkey
1/4 cup  feta, crumbled
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp dill
salt and pepper taste
4 Multi Grain or Wheat 100 Calorie Sandwich thins (you could use regular buns, too. I just prefer the Sandwich thins)

Tzatziki Sauce

1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
1/3 cup English cucumber, peeled and grated
1/2 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp dill
1/2 tsp oregano
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
(more or less salt and pepper depending on your preference)

Preheat your grill. Next cook 1/4 cup quinoa over medium heat in 1/2 cup of water (covered). Cook until tender, about 10-12 minutes. While the quinoa is cooking start on the tzatziki, as it will need a few minutes to incoperate. Mix all ingredients together (garlic, yogurt, grated cucumber, dill, oregano, salt and pepper) and set in the refrigerator. In a large bowl combine ground turkey, garlic, cooked spinach, feta, dill, oregano, salt and pepper. Mix it together with your hands and then form 4 patties. Grill over medium heat for 7-8 minutes each side. Serve on a bun topped with tzatziki and your favorite burger toppings.
