Clean Eating Thai Turkey Burgers

This is a healthier burger alternative... with a kick. The Thai curry paste adds a bit of spice and delicious Thai flavours... 

You can serve the burgers in gluten free buns but to keep them extra healthy, serve in lettuce leaf wraps and maybe with some sweet potato wedges or fries on the side.

(Makes 4 burgers)

For the burgers:
500g turkey mince
4 spring onions, finely sliced 
1 tbsp red Thai curry paste
2 heaped tsp rice flour
Pinch of salt
1 tbsp oil, for frying

To serve:
2 limes
1 avocado
1/2 red chilli, finely sliced
Lettuce leaves

Place all the burger ingredients in a bowl and mix together using your hands. Squeeze and knead the meat until it becomes bound together then shape into two burger patties.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the burgers on a medium to high heat for 10 - 12 minutes, flipping halfway through. Test that it is cooked though before serving.
Meanwhile place the avocado, juice of half a lime and a sprinkle of salt in a food processor. Whizz for a minute until smooth. Cut the remaining lime into wedges.

Serve the burgers on lettuce leaves, topped with the avocado puree, chilli slices and lime wedges.
