Health Benefits of Turmeric

Turmeric, the vibrant yellow spice, boasts several health benefits. It contains a compound called curcumin, known for its powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Curcumin has been associated with reduced inflammation, improved brain health, enhanced immune function, and potential cancer-fighting effects. By incorporating turmeric into your diet, such as in these burgers, you can reap these incredible benefits.

Health Benefits of Spinach

Spinach, on the other hand, is a nutrient powerhouse. It is rich in vitamins A, C, and K, as well as folate, iron, and fiber. Spinach supports a healthy immune system, aids digestion, promotes cardiovascular health, and contributes to strong bones. Including spinach in these burgers not only adds flavor and texture but also boosts their nutritional value, making them an excellent choice for a well-rounded meal.

Spinach Mozzarella Turkey Burgers Recipe


  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 6 oz frozen chopped spinach, thawed and water squeezed out
  • 1/4 cup part-skim mozzarella
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill, thyme, parsley, or oregano (choose your favorite)
  • 1/2 teaspoon jalapeno powder (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the ground turkey, diced onion, thawed and squeezed spinach, part-skim mozzarella, salt, turmeric, dried herbs, and jalapeno powder (if desired). Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  3. Shape the mixture into 6 patties, ensuring they are of equal size for even cooking.
  4. Place the patties on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a lightly greased baking dish.
  5. Bake the burgers in the preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep an eye on them to prevent overcooking.
  6. Once cooked, remove the burgers from the oven and allow them to rest for a few minutes before serving.

Chef Tip: These delicious Turkey Patties can be made lighter by using 99% fat free ground chicken or turkey and fat free cheese.
