New Year, New You, Tip 10: Turkey Burger With Mango Chutney
Cooking Turkey is healthier than beef and using whole grain, will give you the fiber and nutrients that a white flour bun won't. In 2017, let's commit to eating healthy because after all healthy food can also be delicious!
Ingredients (serves 4):
- 1 16- to 20-inch-long baguette, whole-grain
- 1 large red onion, cut into ¼-inch-thick rounds, divided
- 1 pound 93%-lean ground turkey
- 1 tablespoon Skinny & Co. Coconut Oil
- 4 tablespoons mango chutney
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
Preparation (30 minutes):
- Preheat grill to medium-high.
- Cut baguette into 4 equal lengths. Split each piece horizontally and pull out about half of the soft bread from each side.
- Finely chop enough onion rounds to equal ⅓ cup. Combine the chopped onion with turkey, coconut oil, 1 tablespoon chutney and salt in a medium bowl; gently mix with your hands until well combined. Form into 4 burgers, about ½ inch thick and oval-shaped to match the shape of the bread.
- Oil the grill rack with the coconut oil. Grill the remaining onion rounds until softened and blackened in spots, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Grill the burgers until cooked through and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 165°F, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Grill the bread, cut-side down, until just beginning to char on the edges, about 2 minutes.
- To assemble sandwiches, spread the remaining mango chutney on the bottom pieces of baguette. Top with a turkey burger, grilled onion, and lettuce. Cover with the remaining bread.
Tips: Look for prepared mango chutney—a sweet, tangy and spicy condiment—near other Indian ingredients in the international aisle at most supermarkets.
