For the Burger

  • 1 lb lean ground turkey (I shoot for 85-99% lean)
  • 3 Tbsp + 1 tsp olive oil (split into 1 tsp, 2 Tbsp, and 1 Tbsp)
  • 1/2 cup white onion (diced)
  • 1 cup mushrooms (chopped)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup green onions
  • 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • dash of sea salt

Toppings (optional)

  • Lettuce
  • Tomato slice
  • Red onion slices
  • Avocado slices
  • Sprouted Wheat Bun


  1. Heat 1 tsp olive oil in a skillet over medium-low heat
  2. Add diced onions to skillet and let cook for about 3 minutes
  3. Add chopped mushrooms to the skillet with the onions and cook for an additional 2 minutes then remove from element to let cool
  4. Place ground turkey in a mixing bowl and add in all remaining ingredients except 1 Tbsp of olive oil , including the cooked mushrooms and onions
  5. Mix ingredients thoroughly either with hands or with a large spatula
  6. Divide mixture into 6 equal portions and roll into a bowl, place on a tray, and pat down the top of the ball so it forms a ‘disk-like’ form
