Apricot Turkey Burgers

Cooking Light
Chopped chickpeas and tangy dried apricots keep these Moroccan-spiced burgers moist. For a more unusual offering, fold one into flatbread such as FlatOut, Indian naan, or Middle Eastern lavash.

3/4 cup drained canned chickpeas (garbanzo beans)
1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped
1/3 cup minced shallots
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
Cooking spray
6 (1 1/2-ounce) multigrain hamburger buns, split
6 tablespoons Easy Tzatziki Sauce


Prepare grill.

Place chickpeas in a food processor; pulse 3 times or until chopped. Combine chickpeas, apricots, and next 7 ingredients (through turkey). Divide mixture into 6 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty.

Place patties on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 6 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer registers 165°. Remove from grill; let stand 5 minutes.

Place buns, cut sides down, on grill rack; grill 1 minute or until toasted. Place 1 patty on bottom half of each bun; top each serving with 1 tablespoon Easy Tzatziki Sauce and top half of bun.
