Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 3/4 cup chopped spinach
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely diced
  • 1/3 cup light crumbled feta
  • 1/2 lemon, squeezed
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon zest
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp salt & pepper (1/2 of each)

Tzatziki sauce

  • 1 cup 0% plain greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup grated english cucumber *see instructions
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon zest
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Instructions
 

  • In a bowl mix all of the burger ingredients together, shape them into 4 equal size burger patties.
  • Grill on the bbq over med-high heat for 15-20 minutes. These can also be pan-fried, over medium heat and they can also be cooked in the air fryer, I'd recommend 350F and check them at the 12-15 minute mark, be sure to flip them halfway.

For the tzatziki sauce

  • Cut the cucumber lengthwise in half and scoop out the middle seed area, then use the grater.
  • Add a pinch of salt to 1/2 cup grated cucumber and let sit for 10 minutes, then squeeze out any excess water, use a cloth to help get the water out.
  • Mix all of the tzatziki ingredients together and let chill in the fridge for one hour.
