Red pepper feta turkey burgerSometimes, I just want a burger. But I don’t eat that much beef, so when the craving strikes, this healthy turkey burger is a great option.

Roasted red bell pepper and feta give a savory flavor to the burger. Yogurt sauce adds a fresh tanginess. Top with spinach and cucumber for some added greens.

The recipe makes four servings.┬áIf you’re not cooking for that many people, not to worry.

Make all of the turkey patties and store them in the fridge. You’ve got another meal or two ready to go!
