Cilantro, Spinach and Cheese Turkey Burger

I love to make these paddies and eat them for breakfast along with an egg or by themselves. I think they’d go well with a side of sauteed greens or they’d make a great hamburger, on a gluten free bun of course! They’re great if you’re on the go too. This recipe makes approximately 8-10 paddies depending on the size you are going for. All of the ingredients for this recipe are organic and the meat if grass-fed to ensure that I am maintaining my commitment to eating clean.


1 to 1/2 – pound ground turkey

1/3 cup Cilantro, chopped fine

½ cup Spinach, chopped

½ cup onion, chopped

1 egg

¼ cup of dairy free cheese (see photo below)

Salt and Pepper

A dash of cayenne pepper



  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and line a cookie sheet with unbleached parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, using your hands or a wooden spoon, mix all of your ingredients together.
  3. Taking a small amount of mixture, roll into a ball between your hands and place onto the parchment paper. Using the back of your hand press down to flatten into a paddy.

This is the dairy free cheese that I used for this recipe. Feel free to add a different cheese or more cheese if you like.
