Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil (or avocado oil)
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 Granny Smith apple, peeled and diced
  • 1 pound extra-lean organic free-range turkey
  • 3 tablespoons green olives (look for large Greek olives marinated in extra virgin olive oil; these are available from a supermarket olive bar), minced
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes packed in extra virgin olive oil, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon unrefined sea salt (plus more to taste)
  • 2 Hass avocados, large
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 4 sprouted whole-grain buns, toasted
  • Thick tomato slices
  • Cooking Directions

    Heat oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat; add the onion and saute 2–3 minutes.

    Add the apple and saute for an additional 2 minutes.

    Place the sauteed onions and apple in a large mixing bowl.

    Add ground turkey, olives, cilantro, mustard, tomatoes, and measured salt.

    Using clean hands, thoroughly mix ingredients together.

    Shape into 41/2-inch-thick burgers.

    Place burgers on a large platter and refrigerate for 2 hours.

    Scoop the avocado pulp into a medium-size mixing bowl. Add garlic and lime juice. Mash ingredients together with the back of a fork. Season with salt and cayenne pepper. Set avocado butter aside.

    Remove turkey burgers from the refrigerator and season lightly with salt.

    Lightly oil a charcoal grill (or large skillet) and heat over medium-high.

    Add the burgers to the grill and cook for about 7 minutes each side, or until meat is cooked through and no longer pink. Let burgers sit for 5 minutes. Brush buns with oil and lightly toast on the grill.

    Serve burgers with avocado butter and tomato slices.
