Turkey Burger with Cranberry Sauce


Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Total time: 15 minutes sauce,

Serves: 6


Cranberry Sauce
2 cups cranberries
1 cup water
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/3 cup honey or maple syrup
Turkey Burgers
1 1/2 pound ground turkey
1 yellow onion, diced
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1 egg, lightly beaten
3-4 tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil for frying (alternative is to grill them)


1. Make the cranberry sauce, place all ingredients into a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and stir constantly so the chia seeds do not burn on the bottom of the pot. When the mixture has reduced by almost half and has thickened (about 10 minutes), allow to cool and sit aside while you make the turkey burgers.
2. Make the turkey mixture, place the turkey, onion, black pepper, garlic powder, salt, cumin, turmeric and egg in a large bowl and combine well. Make 6 patties.
3. Heat a large fry with the oil, and place the turkey patties in it. Cook for about 6-9 minutes, when one side is golden brown. Cook until done, about 12-18 minutes.
4. Serve with cranberry sauce! Add some fresh rosemary on top!
