Eat For A Week, Episode 14: Curry Turkey Burgers

This episode was intended for a collaborative summer themed cooking video. That hasn't happened because everyone got stupid busy (myself included) so I've decided to upload it here. My friends and I have been playing with this curry turkey burger recipe for some time and rather enjoy it. I hope you will too!

1 can chick peas, drained
1.25 - 2 lbs ground turkey
5 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/4 C fresh cilantro, chopped (or 1-2 Tbsp dry)
1/2 tsp salt
3 - 4 Tbsps yellow curry powder
1 Tbsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 - 1 tsp chili powder
just a dash of allspice

In a bowl, smash up the chick peas. Then add all the other ingredients and mix well.

Form into patties.

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.

Cook patties about 5 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.

If you like, toast the buns in the burger drippings. These burgers won't put off nearly as much fat as a beef burger would. In fact, they're quite lean. Adding some olive oil to the pan before toasting is probably a good idea.

Music for this episode was "Black Hole (good)" by The Hybiscus Journals. Originally written for "Black Hole, pt 3" of Space Adventure.
