Simple, clean & delicious. Low carb, high fat, not for after a workout, but best when you do not was an insulin release from your body.

Ingredients:

1 pound 99% fat free ground turkey breast

1 whole eggplant

1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

1/2 cup finely chopped red onion

4T olive oil

2 tsp. minced garlic

2 whole avocados, sliced

1 tomato, sliced

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Start the eggplant first because it will take the longest. Set over to 350 degrees and spray baking sheet with olive oil cooking spray.  Slice the eggplant into 1/2 – 1 inch thick slices, then quarter.  Toss eggplant in a large bowl with 2T olive oil, salt and pepper.  Place in oven and start the burgers.

Combine the rest of the ingredients in a bowl. Combine ingredients into a ball, make sure it’s all mixed together.  Then pat out into four patties, and fry, grill or broil.  I use the George Foreman but you can cook however you like. Make sure they cook all the way through – this is poultry.

I personally like to serve this with half a sliced avocado and a couple of slices of tomato.  The sliced tomato is self explanatory, but for the avocado, cut in half lengthwise, remove the seed, then while still in shell, slice 4 or 5 times, lengthwise again, then scoop out off shell with fork or spoon and lie over top of the burger.
