Low Carb Turkey Asian Burgers! Freezer friendly, soy free, veggie loaded burgers seasoned with Asian spice. Easy to make, healthy and great for meal prep! Low Carb + Paleo + Low Calorie + Gluten Free
Hungry for summer? I’ve got just the thing for you! Burgers! Let’s talk burgers shall we?
You see the thing about burgers is they’re a clean slate. Boring if you ask me until you fill them with something. But what should that something filling be? Hmm…
Veggies for sure! Not only do they add nutrients (a great way to sneak them in for picky eaters), but they also add moisture to burgers so they get juicer during cooking.
This is important because lower fat meats like turkey or chicken dry out more so adding moisture is important. Everyone loves a good, juicy burger so add those veggies!
Spices and sauces are another great way to ADD flavor to burgers. They give burgers amazing taste and make them more interesting.
More interesting means you’ll want to eat them over and over again! And I’ve got a burger for you today that you’ll want to make over and over again LOW CARB TURKEY ASIAN BURGERS.
Low Carb Turkey Asian Burgers
Oh yes! The classic American burger gets an Asian flare with this recipe. A fun way to spice up your burger game. Healthy, easy to make, flavorful and family approved!
Carrots and green onions are the sneaky veggies. They add moisture and nutrients to the ground turkey which is combined with a classic stir-fry sauce combination that’s not only soy free but also slightly spicy and incredibly delicious!
Not to worry… you can control the heat but I say bring it on!
What You Need
- Ground Turkey Breast (or meat of choice)
- Shredded Carrots
- Olive Oil
- Green Onions
- Coconut Aminos
- Rice Wine Vinegar
- Sesame Seeds
- Cast Iron Skillet
There are multiple ways to cook these burgers. On the stovetop, in the oven or on the grill (see the recipe notes for how to). For this recipe, I used a cast iron skillet on the stovetop. It’s my favorite way to make burgers besides the grill of course. It adds so much flavor to the meat and cooks them perfectly even.
Not a fan of turkey? Use ground chicken or grass-fed beef. They will be as delicious no matter what meat you choose! Just note if you are using beef, you won’t need the olive oil as the meat will already have its own fat.
Serve your Low Carb Turkey Asian Burgers on a gluten-free bun, over a salad with more fresh veggies, on a Paleo bun, with cauliflower rice or sweet potatoes. The options are endless and it’s a healthier way to enjoy burgers too!
