Thai Turkey Burgers With Peanut Sauce

As promised...the recipe for the Thai Turkey Burgers! 

1 lb 99% fat-free lean ground turkey breast
1/2 cup shredded carrot
1/2 cup finely chopped broccoli
3 Tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 green onion, sliced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
4 buns (Glutino's Flax and Gluten Free Bread)
baby spinach leaves

For the peanut sauce:
3 Tablespoons smooth peanut butter
1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon water
1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce (could use siracha)
1 teaspoon honey
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

  1. Create peanut sauce by combining peanut butter, rice vinegar, soy sauce, water, garlic, sesame oil, chili garlic sauce, honey and ground ginger in a food processor or blender. Blend until very smooth. Reserve 2 Tablespoons + 2 teaspoons and set aside.
  2. Combine remaining peanut sauce with turkey, carrots, broccoli, green onion, cilantro, salt and red pepper flakes in a large bowl. Mix well and form into 4 patties. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and spray with non-stick spray. Cook patties for 3-4 minutes on one side, then spray the top with more non-stick spray. Flip and cook for 3-4 more minutes or until burgers are no longer pink in the middle.
  3. Place a burger patty on each bun and top with 2 teaspoons of the reserved peanut sauce. Add baby spinach for crunch and serve.
