These juicy burgers are seasoned with a flavor-forward Mediterranean blend and are a hit with my whole family, especially my 2-year-old son, Jacob. I packed these burgers with vitamin C–rich cauliflower and potassium-rich frozen spinach to add a heart-healthy boost and bind the burger. Garnish this dish with sliced red onion, tomato, and fresh spinach.
- Make the Mediterranean Seasoning Rub Blend: in an empty spice container, mix the garlic powder, pepper, turmeric, paprika, and cumin until well combined.
- Set an oven rack 6 inches from the broiler and preheat the oven to broil. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a blender, pulse the cauliflower and onion for 1 to 2 minutes, until they are minced.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the spinach, cauliflower and onion mixture, turkey, and 1½ teaspoons of the spice blend. Mix well and form into 8 medium patties and place them on the baking sheet.
