This was a nice change of pace and very filling. A good end to Day 7 on my 21-Day Sugar Detox.
Spinach Turkey Burgers & Leek Brussel Sprouts
For the burgers:
1/2 lbs turkey burger (I got dark meat)
1/2 tsp minced scallions
3 tbls chopped fresh spinach
Pinch of sage
Pinch of thyme
Mix all the ingredients in with the turkey burger thoroughly and form two patties.
Press the burgers with a spatula, flip and cook about another 2 minutes per side or until done throughout.
For the brussel sprouts:
8-10 brussel sprouts
2 tbls, chopped leeks
Dash of ground pepper
2 tbls coconut oil
Cut the ends off of the brussel sprouts and then halve them. Steam them for about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat a tablespoon of coconut oil in a medium pan and add in the leeks. Sautee with the cover on.
After a few minutes, add in the brussel sprouts and add the pepper and the other tablespoon of coconut oil and sautee for a few more minutes with the cover on (brussel sprouts should begin to brown a bit and leeks should begin to soften.
