Dukan Diet Recipe – Turkey Burgers
When I make burgers, probably three times out of every four, I use turkey or chicken rather than beef, as I try to restrict the amount of red meat that I eat. If I’m going to eat beef I usually treat myself to steak.
On PP days you can eat your burger between Dukan Oat Bran Pancakes or Dukan Oat Bran Toast with a few slices of red onion and gherkins. On PV days you can add salad to the burger and you can also substitute the pancakes or toast for two large portbello mushrooms.
You can use this recipe to make meatballs that on PV days you can have in a spicy tomato and vegetable sauce. If you are unable to find the right low fat sausages you can shape this mix into sausages to eat with dry fried egg, mushrooms, tomatoes and Dukan Diet Oat Bran toast for a really substantial brunch.
Turkey Burgers (Makes 2 burgers)
- 250 grams of lean turkey mince
- 1/2 onion
- 1 egg white
- Salt and pepper
- Chop the onion very finely.
- Place the turkey and onion in a bowl, add a little salt and pepper and mix well.
- Add the egg white and mix again.
- Divide the mixture in two and form two burgers.
- Dry fry in a nonstick pan turning once halfway through cooking.
You can add mustard or chilli flakes or a small amount of cooked chopped mushrooms. Don’t add too many mushrooms or the mix won’t hold together. If you don’t like Oat Bran pancakes, muffins and so on or just haven’t had time to do any baking you can also add some oat bran to the mix. You may have to add another egg white depending on how much bran you’ve mixed in.
