Apricot Turkey Burgers

Apricot Turkey Burgers

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.

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 burger)

Ingredients

  • 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

  • 6 tablespoons Easy Tzatziki Sauce

Preparation

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.
