Caprese Turkey Burger w Parmesan Asparagus Fries - Lean and Green Recipe

 😋Caprese Turkey Burger with Parmesan Asparagus Fries😋


Ingredients:

• 8 oz. sliced fresh mozzarella

• 2 tsp olive oil

• 2 tbsp fresh basil, chopped

• ⅛ tsp salt, divided

• 2 cups eggplant sliced into ½ inch rounds

• Cooking spray

• 4 tsp balsamic vinegar

• 1 lb. ground turkey 99% lean

• ½ tsp garlic powder

• 3 tbsp Parmesan cheese

• 3 tbsp almond flour

• 16 asparagus spears, trimmed

• 1 large egg white

• 2 cups sliced tomatoes



Directions: 

1. Pre-heat your air fryer or oven to 400°F. 

2. Drizzle the sliced mozzarella with the olive oil and sprinkle with basil and half of the salt. Let marinate while you grill the eggplant and turkey patties.

3. Heat a grill or grill pan over medium high heat. Spray eggplant rounds with cooking spray and grill until cooked through but still sturdy, about 3 to 5 minutes per side. Drizzle with the balsamic vinegar while still warm.

4. Divide the ground turkey into patties. Season with garlic powder and the remaining half of the salt. Grill until cooked through, about 8 to 9 minutes per side. 

5. While the turkey burgers cook, mix together the Parmesan cheese and almond flour. Whisk the egg whites until frothy. Toss the asparagus spears in the egg white and then roll in the Parmesan mixture to coat well. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes until crispy and cooked.

6. To serve, place an eggplant slice on a plate. Top with a turkey patty, tomato slices and marinated mozzarella. Serve asparagus fries on the side.
