Ingredients
  

  • 7 ounces plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 medium fresh lemon
  • 1/4 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp dried dill
  • 1 1/4 pound ground turkey
  • 6 halves sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 medium red onion
  • 2 ounces frozen spinach
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 medium cucumber
  • 6 whole grain hamburger buns
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Prepare the yogurt sauce by combining the yogurt, 1/4 tsp minced garlic, dry dill, juice of half the lemon and a dash of salt. Stir everything to combine and then refrigerate to allow the flavors to blend while you make the burgers.
  • Thaw the frozen spinach and squeeze out as much moisture as possible. Roughly chop the spinach to prevent long stringy pieces. Also chop the sun dried tomatoes and 1/4 of the red onion.
  • In a bowl combine the ground turkey with the spinach, sun dried tomatoes, red onion, feta, 1/2 tsp minced garlic, dried oregano, egg, bread crumbs, 1/2 tsp of salt and some freshly ground pepper. Stir everything until it is evenly combined. Shape the mixture into six patties.
  • Cook the burgers on a counter top grill, a non-stick skillet or over open flame. Spread the yogurt sauce on both sides of a bun, add a warm burger and top with thin slices of red onion and cucumber. Enjoy!
