Some of you asked me after a recent post if we have any issues with red meat (especially since Nutrition Action has issued warnings against over-consumption of red meat). We always look for the delicious grass-fed and organic beef, which I think of as an entirely different food than the non-organic, corn feed beef often harvested from sick and over-crowded cows. We of course mix things up all the time with other animal protein sources including game, poultry and fish. In the summertime, it is great to have a nice turkey burger that is a bit lighter than a regular beef burger, yet still tastes great. Here is an easy recipe:
-1 pound ground turkey
-½ cup feta cheese
-½ teaspoon oregano, dried or fresh
-½ teaspoon parsley, dried or fresh
-¼ teaspoon garlic powder, dried
-¼ teaspoon black pepper
*If you don’t have all of these spices on hand, an Italian blend works well.
Optional: bun (gluten free or whole wheat)
Garnish with spinach, white onion, cucumbers, tomato and cheese, if desired (Monterey Jack works well).
In a bowl, mix everything together. You do not need to add salt due to the salt content in the feta cheese. Grill or broil until done to perfection.
