2 lbs. ground turkey
½ c. Roasted garlic
2 T. ginger root, coarsely chopped
¼ t. red pepper flakes
½ t. black ground pepper
½ c. soy sauce
2 T. Olive oil
1 T. sesame oil
1 bunch (about 4) chopped green onions
¼ c. chopped fresh basil
Cheese of choice (opt…I used provolone)
In a mini blender, or chopper, combine roasted garlic, (click link for recipe) ginger root, red pepper flakes, black pepper, soy sauce, olive and sesame oils. Let ‘er rip until it’s made into a paste. Add the paste to turkey, along with the green onions and basil, and mix completely. Shape into 6 – 8 patties, depending on size. Spray the grill grates with cooking spray to avoid sticking, and grill burgers until no longer pink, adding cheese (opt.) the last-minute or so until melted.
I served these on thin buns with grilled onions, my Asian slaw, seasoned fries, and roasted asparagus… DELISH!
Definitely putting this one in the recipe arsenal!
