Turkey & Courgette Burgers

I love, love, LOVE a good burger. There is nothing wrong with having a massive cheese burger that requires two hands to eat it (and a bib) every now and again. Whilst that bad boy may be good for your soul (and hangover) it isn’t THE best thing for your body. These Turkey & Courgette burgers are a healthier & leaner option but still taste amazing! I make a batch and freeze them so I can dig them out whenever I need a quick dinner or lunch.

These burgers are amazing in naked burger bowls and jammed between a bun with avocado & homemade salsa.

(Makes about 10-12)


  • 400g Lean Turkey mince
  • 1 large courgette, grated
  • 2 spring onions, sliced
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 red chilli, finely sliced
  • Handful of fresh coriander, chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Set your Oven 180’  (Fan)
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine all the ingredients.
  3. With your hands mould into patties – should make about 10/12 depending on how big you make them. (Use and ice cream scoop and smush down if you don’t want to use your hands)
  4. On a medium heat a tsp of olive oil in a large frying pan. Cook the burgers on each side for about 3 mins – you just want to put a bit on colour on them, don’t fiddle with them either as they will fall apart!
  5. Line a baking tray with grease proof paper and place the patties on the tray. Cook in the oven for about 15 minutes till cooked through.
