Turkey Sliders with Zucchini Buns
adapted from Queen of Quinoa
- 1/2 lb ground turkey, chicken, or beef
- 1 diced garlic clove
- 1 tbsp diced red onion
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 2 tbsp chopped fresh basil
- 1 large zucchini
- olive oil
Mix the meat, garlic, onion, s&p, and basil well in a bowl. Cook small patties in a pan that are the size of the diameter of your zucchini. While burgers are cooking, slice your zucchini in quarter inch slices. Drizzle them with olive oil and sea salt on both sides, and grill using a grill pan for the awesome grill marks (otherwise, a regular pan works just fine.) Cook zucchini for just a few minutes on each side so that they stay firm and do not get soggy.
Top your zucchini bun with burger, and add your favorite toppings. I added a slice of avocado, but you can add tomato, lettuce, mushrooms, ketchup, mustard, whatever!
