Turkey Burgers with Peanut Sauce

When I have tried turkey burgers in the past, I have been disappointed in the bland flavor. This recipe is FULL of flavor! It is also a healthy option. We really like it.

Turkey Burgers with Peanut Sauce adapted from Cooking Light
Sauce:
2 TBSP peanut butter
2 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
1 ½ tsp sesame oil
1 tsp water
1 tsp rice vinegar
1 garlic clove, minced
To prepare sauce, combine ingredients and whisk together until smooth.

Burgers:
½ c finely chopped green onions
1 TBSP chili paste with garlic
1 tsp grated fresh ginger (I use the bottled kind)
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
¼ tsp salt
1 lb ground turkey
Cooking spray
4 whole-grain 100% whole wheat hamburger buns
1 c alfalfa or broccoli sprouts
Prepare grill.
To prepare burgers, place onions, chili paste, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, salt and turkey in a food processor and process until coarsely ground. (You could just mix together if you don’t have a processor) Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a ½ inch-thick patty.
Place patties on a grill rack coated with cooking spray or oil; grill 4 minutes on each side or until done. Place buns, cut side down, on grill rack: grill 1 minute or until toasted. Place 1 patty on bottom half of each bun; top each serving with ¼ c sprouts, and about 1 tablespoon sauce, and top half of the bun. Yield 4 servings.
