One of Those Meals
Today, I had one of those meals.
One of those meals that make you want to scream to the high heavens
Or throw open your front door and yell in joy to who ever may hear
Or take endless photos of
Or savour for each blissful moment
Or immediately tell someone about
Or, well, maybe you get the picture?
So yes, today I had one of those meals and it was amazing.
It all started way back on Wednesday morning when I got a little creative in the kitchen… (What a way to take advantage of a study day – right?)
I made some awesome turkey muffins to have on hand throughout the week and a couple new recipes as well. One being the chickpea turkey bites I shared with you all yesterday This recipe I am about to share with you all is similar, but oh so different, too! Both recipes have a uniqueness to them. I am not sure which I prefer because they are both phenomenal.
Chickpea and Spinach Turkey Burgers
Makes two small burgers
1/2 cup ground turkey
1/4 cup chickpeas, cooked
1 TBSP egg white
spinach leaves, chopped (I believed I used about 8 – 10 leaves)
1 – 2 TBSP white onion, chopped
1/4 cup mushrooms, chopped (maybe a little less – I didn’t measure)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Begin my pulsing chickpeas into smooth consistency. In a bowl, combine all ingredients together and mix well. Form into patties and place on a lined baking sheet (I use foil – easy clean up!) Bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until internal thermometer reads 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
These little burgers are incredible guys. You must try them. They are everything you wanted and more.
They are moist and oh so flavourful.
I enjoyed my first burger atop a rice cake and Greek yogurt
Crunchy, but creamy. And yes, so flavourful.
My second burger is what made the meal. It was the meal. The meal that turned me into a complete mush ball.
I love food.
A big glob of tahini…
A rice cake and some spinach…
and call it food heaven.
But why are we only seeing pictures of half of the burger only?
Because Meg couldn’t wait and ate the other half.
Oops Like I said – these burgers are really good.
What was the best thing you ate today?
What type of ground meat do you use to make your burgers?
Do you like tahini? I have such a hard time thinking of ways to use my tahini, but I think I just found the perfect way
Have a wonderful day friends!
