Amy shared the recipe with me; originally from

Makes about 10 medium size burgers (enough for 4 to 5 people)


  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 large zucchini, grated
  • 2 scallions, thinly chopped (aka green onions)
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin

Lemon Yogurt Sauce

  • 1 container (7 oz) plain Greek yogurt
  • Zest of one lemon (grate the side of the lemon to get the zest or use a zester tool)
  • Juice of one lemon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Chopped scallions for garnish (aka green onions)


  1. In a small bowl combine all sauce ingredients, stir well and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl combine all burger ingredients and with dampened hands shape into burgers (you can also make meatballs if feel like.)
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in large skillet over medium-high heat and cook burgers, in batches, until golden brown, about 6 to 7 minutes per side (it really depends on the size of your burgers.)
  4. Serve warm with lemon yogurt sauce on the side.
