I have discovered the wonderful world of burgers, which are neither fast-food junk or gourmet, but dripping of grease!

This low-fat turkey burger is a great weekend dinner: 498 kcal and 34.5g protein (but a lot depends on the ingredients you choose).

Ingredients:

  • 100g turkey steak
  • 1/4 of an avocado
  • 1 gem lettuce
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 tsp houmous
  • herbs and spices of your taste
  • 1 ciabatta roll

Preparation

  • Dry rub the turkey steak with your chosen herbs and spices (I like garlic salt, pepper, oregano and some chilli)
  • Grill it (I usually use a griddle pan)
  • Wash the gem lettuce and separate to leaves and slice the tomato
  • Toast your bun, spread with houmous
  • Assemble your burger: bun, lettuce leaves, tomatoes, turkey, avocado, bun
  • Make a Chef's salad from the lettuce and tomatoes (adding some spring onions and cucumber?) you could not fit into the burger
  • Always feel free to add more vegetables (maybe some cheeky mozzarella too ;))

Enjoy :)
