    Sesame Turkey Burger 

    sesame turkey burger 1-1-2013

    Happy New Year!  I have been on a break from blogging for a few months as the holidays, work deadlines, and family priorities took over.  With it being the new year, my foodie resolution is to get back to creating recipes and blogging.  While I maintained a healthy eating lifestyle during my blogging break, I did not do much as far as developing new recipes.  Well, New Years day I had an itch to make a turkey burger, but I wanted to make a new flavorful burger.  What I came up with is this recipe, which is soooo delish!  The use of quality, dried spices makes this a quick, easy recipe with top notch flavor. I topped this burger with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and ketchup and could not get enough. When I ate the last burger, I was sad it was gone.  Definitely a new favorite for me!


    1 lb 99% Lean Ground Turkey
    3 Tbsp sesame seeds
    2 Tbsp soy sauce, reduced sodium
    1 Tbsp ground basil, dried
    3 Tbsp granulated onion
    1 Tbsp garlic powder
    2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
    2 Tbsp peanut oil, divided
    1 tsp black pepper
    4 wheat hamburger buns, split


    Mix together, gently, the first 7 ingredients in a bowl. Add in 1 Tbsp peanut oil and pepper, and continue to mix gently. Place bowl in the fridge for an hour.

    Form meat mixture into 4 patties and set aside.

    In a skillet, heat remaining peanut oil on medium heat. Place patties in skillet, reduce heat slightly and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until brown. Gently flip patties and continue to cook for 2-3 more minutes, or until done. Be sure to resist the urge to cook at a high heat so you do not burn the juices on the outside of burger.

    Serve each burger on buns with your favorite toppings.

    Sesame Noodles 

    This dish is light and quite tasty using wheat spaghetti noodles. A mixture of lime juice, green onions, snow peas, bean sprouts, and red bell pepper provide an easy way to get a healthy does of vegetables. This recipe is awesome for leftovers, as I ate this for days and could not get enough.  Note: Do not substitute reduced sodium soy sauce with regular soy sauce, as it is too salty and not good for the heart.


    8 oz whole wheat spaghetti
    1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
    2 tablespoons sesame oil
    3 tablespoons peanut oil, divided
    2 tablespoons lime juice (2 limes)
    3 teaspoons crushed red pepper
    1 bunch green onions, sliced
    2 cups mung bean sprouts
    1 pound chicken breast, cut in small pieces
    4 cups snow peas, trimmed and sliced on the bias
    1 medium red bell pepper, thinly sliced
    1/2 cup toasted sesame seeds*


    • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook spaghetti until just tender, 9 to 11 minutes or according to package directions. Drain.
    • Meanwhile, whisk soy sauce, sesame oil, 1 tablespoon peanut oil, lime juice, crushed red pepper, and green onions.
    • In a hot wok, add remaining peanut oil. Stir fry chicken till no longer pink. Add soy sauce mixture, bean sprouts, snow peas, bell pepper, and sesame seeds. Stir fry for only 3 minutes, just to lightly steam the vegetables. Do not stir fry too long or the vegetables will lose their crisp.
    • Toss noodles with sauce.

    *Toast the sesame seeds to really bring out the full nutty flavor. Heat the seeds in a dry pan over medium heat, or on a sheet in a 275ºF oven, until golden and fragrant, about 5 minutes.

    Servings:  About 8 servings, 1 1/2 cups each.
    Calories: About 450 per serving.
