Toasted Nut Mix:
I completely eyeball this, and use different nuts each time depending on what I have in my cabinet.
- 2 Tbsp. butter, or coconut oil
- 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/4 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
- 1/4 cup chopped almonds
- 2 T sesame seeds
- Salt and Pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a pan on the stove over medium heat until the nuts/seeds become fragrant or toasted. Or you could melt the butter and combine it all and bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 mins.
- 2 lbs. ground turkey meat
- 2 cups asian slaw mix (above)
- 1 egg
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 Tbsp. ginger, minced
- 4 Tbsp. gf soy sauce, or coconut aminos
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp. toasted sesame oil
- 3 green onions, sliced
- olive or coconut oil for cooking
In a large bowl combine the egg, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, and green onions. Whisk together, and then add the turkey and slaw mix, stir until well incorporated.
Heat a pan over medium heat with a bit of oil. Add burgers and cook completely, about 4-5 mins per side depending on how large you make them.
Place some slaw on a plate, sprinkle with some nuts, put several burgers on top then drizzle with dressing, and enjoy!
The original recipe combines everything but the burgers ahead of time, but I prefer the slaw to stay crunchy, especially if there are leftovers.
