Not what you think of when you say "garden burger," but Turkey Burgers with Veggies is a healthier option to a red-meat burger. 


  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/2 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1/4 cup reduced-calorie/fat creamy cucumber dressing (plus 3 tablespoons, reserved)
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh oregano or basil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Sliced tomatoes, avocados and onions, and lettuce leaves to top burgers
  • 6 toasted sandwich buns


  1. Using a small mixing bowl, combine the carrot, zucchini, 1/4 cup of dressing, green onions, garlic, oregano or basil, salt and pepper. Stir in the oats. Add the ground turkey and mix everything together well. Shape the mixture into 3/4-inch-thick patties.
  2. Prior to heating your grill, spray the grate with nonstick cooking spray. Heat the grill to medium-high. Grill, uncovered, for about 15-18 minutes, turning once. Spread the reserved dressing on one side of each toasted bun. Serve with your favorite toppings.
