And Everyone, Even The Toddlers, Loved Them: Turkey Hemp Burgers

Hemp you say? Yea mon. Hemp hearts to be precise. Instead of bread-crumbs my friends. I’m all over nutritious, low-carb alternatives. For starters, they are a plant based protein. Omega and fibre rich; hemp hearts contain essential fatty acids omega 6 and omega 3 and both soluble and insoluble fiber. They’re also loaded with vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A, B1, B2, D and E.


Now, traditionally – peeps usually eat hemp hearts or seeds on oatmeal or stirred into yogurt; generally being a breakfast food item. I first experimented with using hemp hearts instead of bread crumbs when making a meatloaf a while back. It did the job. Plain and simple.

If you’re a regular reader of my recipes – you’ll know that I often mix things up in kitchen in the interest of creating healthier, yet still fabulous tasting versions of the foods we love.

So. Turkey burgers.

(I’ve also used them to make beef burgers and bison burgers (we like burgers around here). Which yes, all were yum.) Today though – I’m all about the turkey, just so I can show you how something ridiculously good for you can taste ridiculously fabulous too.

It’s all in the love aded in. True story. Oh, and the grilling and the addition of cheese.

This is a last minute, week-night dinner that you can whip up in under 20 minutes, (see more #20minutedinner ideas), including the cooking time if you’re quick on your feet. Just remember to take your meat out of the freezer in the morning and you’ll be good to go later…
