Cilantro Turkey Burgers


I think one of the keys to maintaining a healthy lifestyle is to have a few go-to recipes to pull out of your sleeve when all else fails.  One that everyone in the family loves, one that is easy and fast.  This is the first one that comes  to my mind when the question of “what am I going to make tonight” pops into my head.  It’s become a family favorite.  We normally eat this bun-free, but feel free to add your favorite roll.  We like it with a dipping sauce on the side, like sriracha-aioli for the adults, or simple aioli for the kids.   We’ve eaten this with quinoa, simple salads, sautéed kale, or featured here with the roasted cauliflower and radicchio salad.
