Lean Turkey Burgers

Burgers aren't the first thing you think of when you're trying to be health conscious. Yet if it's burgers you're craving, this version is about as lean and 'good' as you can go. Lean turkey mince rather than fatty beef, loads of added flavour with herbs and olives and rather than smothering it in greasy cheese and mayo we opt for a small crumbling of feta and a low fat yoghurt tzatziki.

Ingredients & RecipePrint


  • turkey thigh mince (500g)
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • a small handful of black olives
  • a handful of fresh parsley
  • a handful of fresh basil
  • a small handful of breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • a chunk of feta cheese
  • ¼ of a cucumber
  • a handful of fresh mint
  • Greek yoghurt (150g)
  • a drizzle of olive oil
  • 1/2 a lemon
  • 6 small brioche buns
  • 1 avocado

you'll also need

  • 2 small ring cutters (~7cm and ~8cm, optional)


chuck the turkey mince into a large bowl.
dice the peeled onion and garlic as fine as possible, then chop up the black olives, fresh parsley and basil.
add them into the bowl with the mince with the breadcrumbs and egg yolk then mix well.
shape the meat into balls, then press the balls into flat patties, using a ring cutter to measure the size.
preheat the oven to 180ºC.
heat a griddle pan until very hot. Brush the burgers with a little oil and press firmly onto the griddle.
cook the burgers for a few minutes on each side to get grill marks, then place on a baking tray.
crumble the feta over the top of the burgers and place in the oven for 5 minutes.
slice the buns in half and place on the griddle until browned and slightly crisp.
chop the cucumber up very small, leaving the centre core to one side.
tear up the mint and chuck it in a bowl with the cucumber, yoghurt, olive oil and lemon juice.
mix everything together.
halve the avocado and carefully remove the stone.
scoop out the flesh and slice, along with the tomato.
cut the buns with the smaller ring cuttter.
place some avocado slices onto the bottom of the bun.
place a burger onto the avocado and top with a dollop of the tzatziki and the lid of the bun then serve.
