Sundried Tomato Pesto Turkey Burgers


It’s almost BBQ season here in the UK so I thought I’d try out a new burger recipe 🙂 You can’t beat homemade burgers, they are so much healthier and you know exactly what’s in them (and more importantly, what isn’t in them)!

I love all things pesto related (as you will have seen from numerous dishes that I create and add pesto into) and the sundried tomato pesto with the other ingredients in these turkey burgers, were so delicious 🙂

Ingredients for the burgers (for 2 ppl)

  • Turkey mince – 400g
  • Mushrooms – 1 cup
  • Red onion – 1/2 cup
  • Sundried tomato pesto – 2 bsp
  • Sunflower and pumpkin seeds
  • Black Pepper
  • Oregano
  • Coconut oil

Make it

  1. Finely chop the onion and mushrooms and fry in the coconut oil until softened
  2. Add a bit of the pesto and stir through
  3. Pop in a large mixing bowl and pop the turkey mince in and mix through
  4. Add the rest of the pesto, sunflower and pumpkin seeds, black pepper, oregano and mix it all through
  5. Using either your hands for the rustic look or a burger press for a more professional look, mould the turkey mince into burgers
  6. Gently fry the burgers in the pan with coconut oil turning over them over until cooked through

Serve in a wholemeal toasted bun with mozzarella and salad – delicious!
