“AIP” Turkey Burger

We’ve had to a make a few adjustments in our eating habits this week because a member of our family was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. Consequently, I’ve been experimenting with the Autoimmune Protocol Diet (AIP). This is a diet that seek to eliminate foods that cause inflammation in the body.

I’ve had AIP eaters attend my classes in the past and I’ve adjusted my recipes, NO PROBLEM! But now, to do it all the time at home, I've got a challenge to find and make foods that don't just match AIP requirements, but are good to eat.

This AIP Turkey Burger is my latest creation. The recipe is adapted from kristinaol.com to meet our needs. Enjoy and share!

Ingredients…

  • 1 Lb ground Turkey
  • ¼ Cup red onion, finely diced
  • 1 ½ Cups spinach, finely chopped
  • ½ Teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • 2 Teaspoons Olive oil
  • 1 Teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 Teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Turmeric
  • 1 ½ Teaspoons dried Oregano

Directions…

In a large bow combine Turkey, red onion, spinach and seasoning.  Using 2 forks, work everything together until all the ingredients are well combined.  Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and form burger patties.

Heat a large skillet over medium heat, cook the burgers for 5 minutes per side.  The internal temperature should be 165 F.

Serve with Boiled Cassava or sweet Potato fries and a Nice Crispy salad (but NO TOMATOES if you’re AIP!!!).

As always, enjoy!

Try pairing our Jerk AIP Turkey Burgers with a our Sweet Potato Fries as suggested above.  Sorry, our Old Fashioned Rum Punch is off limits if you are AIP.
