Looks like a lot of ingredients, but its mostly spices you have on hand!
1/3 cup whole wheat couscous (yes, you can use regular)
1/2 cup water
1 pound ground turkey
1/2 cup finely diced red bell pepper
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
Combine couscous and water and let it stand for 20-30 minutes to absorb all the water and soften up.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a small nonstick skillet. Add bell pepper, garlic, thyme, curry powder, cumin, allspice, ginger, salt, pepper, paprika and cayenne. Cook until bell pepper is softened a little (about 1-2 minutes)
Combine all ingredients. Turkey, bell pepper mix, and couscous. Mix WELL and form into patties. You should get about 6 good sized burgers. Grill until browned and no longer pink on the inside. Cooking times will vary!
I had to take some shots of them on the grill!
Look at these grill marks!
Now, you do have the option to serve these on buns with lettuce and tomato like any other burger! We just didn't!
Grilled Veggie Skewers
3 bell peppers (I used green because they are cheapest!)
1 red onion
1 yellow squash
Salt and Pepper
2 garlic cloves, pressed or minced
You'll want to core your peppers and the cut into 1 inch pieces. For the onion, cut it into quarters and then peel off the layers one at a time. For the squash and zucchini, cut in half lengthwise, then slice into inch thick pieces.
Then, toss them in oil, salt, pepper, and garlic. Skewer in any variety you choose!
On they go!
Oh, just look at these!
Serve it up. Healthy, low car meal right here!
Enjoy! They are easy, they are summer-y, and they are delicious!
