Here’s a kid favorite with a nutritionist’s special touch: I add frozen chopped spinach (so convenient!) right into the burgers for a huge blast of vitamins and minerals. They’ll love the taste and you’ll love that they’re gobbling up something that’s good for them.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 6 burgers
  • • 1¼ pounds lean ground turkey (at least 90% lean)
  • •10 ounces frozen, chopped spinach (thawed and drained)
  • • 1 packet taco seasoning mix or try my homemade blend

In a large bowl, use both hands to mix together the ground turkey, spinach, and taco seasoning until blended. Divide the burger mixture to form six patties.

Preheat a large skillet liberally coated with oil spray over medium-high heat (or preheat a grill pan or outdoor grill). Add the burgers and cook about 5 minutes per side, or until burgers are no longer pink in the center.

If you’re trying to cut carbs, enjoy your burger on half a bun and pile on the veggies.
