Hummus Turkey Burgers
- 1 package organic ground turkey
- 1/2 cup hummus, plus extra for spreading (I used a combo of Trader Joe's original and roasted red pepper)
- Dried parsley
- Salt and black pepper to taste
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 4 slices cheddar cheese
- 8 tomato slices
- Toasted whole wheat burger buns
1.) Mix the turkey, hummus, parsley and cumin in a bowl. Season with your desired amount of salt and pepper. Shape the mixture into 4 patties.
2.) Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium/high heat. Add the patties and cook until browned and cooked through. This can take anywhere from 5-7 minutes on each side. They’re done when there is no pink in the center of the burger. (Organic turkey meat is also a lot more delicate than "regular" turkey, so just be extra careful when flipping). Add a slice of cheese to each burger once there's 1-1 1/2 minutes left of cooking time, so cheese melts accordingly.
3.) Spread some hummus on each half of the burger buns. Set the burger on top and garnish with the tomato slices (2 slices per burger).
