Thai Turkey Burgers with Spicy Sriracha Slaw
I am all about these thai turkey burgers right now! The dish takes a quick 30 minutes to put together but is full of exotic flavors to make a weeknight meal special. You can enjoy the last of the summer weather we are having and take this outside to prepare on the grill or savor this dish all year long and make on the grill pan inside. The burgers are flavorful and moist and a great low carb dinner!
We wanted to keep the accompanying slaw simple so we prepared this using a pre-shredded broccoli and carrot slaw mix, but if you don’t have this readily available go ahead and shred some using a food processor or a box grater. The mangos REALLY make this side dish stand out but just make sure to use a perfectly ripe one so it adds the right amount of sweetness.
You can serve them as lettuce wrapped burgers for the perfect low carb dinner that satisfies!
Or make it into a low carb burger bowl with the slaw, cauliflower rice, avocado, red onion, and ribboned cucumber drizzled with a little extra sriracha. PERFECT!
