delicious, moist turkey burgers

I made these turkey burgers for dinner the night before Gabi’s last performance in her senior play.  We had roasted asparagus and baked sweet potatoes, too.  It was a simple and delicious meal, but we were running late, so I didn’t get a chance to take a photo–oops!  But here’s Gabi after the rose ceremony–a ceremony at the end of the school year where the first graders give the twelfth graders a rose to send them out into the world.  At the beginning of the year, the seniors gave the first graders a rose to welcome them to the school.  Anyhow, Gabi is off at college now, and I miss her, and these burgers were quite tasty!

1 pound ground turkey

2 small carrots (or 1 large), grated

3 ramps (or scallions or onion or garlic, but the ramps are so delicious!), finely chopped

about 1/4 cup chopped cilantro

1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste

some freshly ground pepper, to taste


Mix all ingredients together in a mixing bowl.

Preheat a skillet covered with a small amount of olive oil, so the burgers don’t stick.  Cook over medium heat until the burgers are cooked through.

I am a writer, handworker, artist and teacher (a WHAT!), and a mom of two beautiful daughters who are amazingly 17 and 21. I am working on getting my first book, a fantasy novel for young people, published and am busy spinning on my new spinning wheel. I have been a Waldorf early childhood teacher for 10 years now, and before that, I was a lawyer. Teaching is much more fun.
