Spicy Turkey and Avocado Burger

These delicious Turkey burgers are not only quick and easy to make, they’re also a healthy alternative to a regular burger. 



2x 40g slices wholemeal bread

500g minced turkey

4 spring onions, thinly sliced

2 red chillies, finely chopped

Handful of fresh coriander, chopped

Salt and black pepper


4 crusty wholemeal rolls

8 Little Gem lettuce leaves

4 slices of tomato

1 medium avocado, skin and stone removed, flesh mashed




Blitz the bread briefly in a blender or food processor to make fine breadcrumbs.Using your hands, mix together the turkey, breadcrumbs, 3 of the spring onions, the chilli and half the coriander in a bowl. Season lightly with salt and pepper.


Again, using your hands, divide the mixture into 4 portions and shape each one into a burger approximately an inch thick. Cover and chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours.


Lightly spray a large frying pan with Frylight and place over a medium to high heat. Cook the burgers for 8-10 minutes on each side, until golden brown and cooked right through.


Cut the rolls in half and add two lettuce leaves and a slice of tomato to each base. Place a burger on top and add 1 tablespoon of mashed avocado, a sprinkling of spring onion and a few sprigs of fresh coriander to each. Sandwich together with the top of the roll and enjoy.
