TERIYAKI TURKEY BURGER with Pineapple Slaw By Morgan Kline June 17, 2019 When the burger craving hits but you want to err on the healthy side, it seems that the stereotypical order is a turkey burger. But before you whip up the all-American mustard, ketchup and pickles rendition, I want to throw a little twist your way. This Teriyaki Turkey Burger is the ideal summer dinner dish that is packed with protein, perfect for meal prepping and sure to be an unforgettable menu item for any summer barbecue. THE SECRET SAUCE Oftentimes when you order teriyaki anything, the sauce is packed with sugar and preservatives. That is why I decided to make my own! My homemade teriyaki sauce has that sweet, garlicky flavor that we all crave—without the unhealthy processed ingredients. This sauce uses maple syrup, which contains zero refined sugars, and mixes in tamari sauce to give you that Asian fusion flavor. The avocado oil provides a fair serving of healthy fats, and the turkey burger itself will leave you feeling full and satisfied. These Teriyaki Turkey Burgers are full of PROTEIN, VEGETABLES, FRUIT AND FIBER! The showstopper that truly pulls this meal together is the pineapple cabbage slaw! This coleslaw combines the delicious taste of tangy pineapple with crispy, crunchy broccoli slaw. Before you serve up a side salad to increase your daily fiber intake, remember that the broccoli slaw contains over 8 grams of fiber in only one cup. This well-rounded meal meets all your dietary needs! If pineapple isn’t your fruit of choice, you can swap it out for mango or even peaches, interchangeably.. Mix and match your ingredients to satisfy your taste buds! That’s the best thing about meal prepping—it can be whatever you want it to be. THIS TERIYAKI TURKEY BURGER IS….
