Ingredients
  • 1 pound ground lean chicken
  • 1/2 cup finely grated zucchini
  • 1/2 cup finely grated carrot
  • 4 chopped scallions, white and green, chopped
  • 1/4 cup hummus
  • 1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 whole wheat burger buns or pitas, for serving
  • Sliced tomato, cucumber, lettuce, red onion, and some plain yogurt, for serving
Directions

1. Put the chicken in a bowl and add the zucchini, carrot, scallion, hummus, parsley, garlic, coriander and cumin. Mix the meat and flavorings together by hand, or with a wooden spoon, until evenly combined. Form into four burgers, about 1/2-inch thick. (If the mixture is very soft, transfer the burgers to a plate and refrigerate for 10 minutes.)

2. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Brush burgers lightly with olive oil and season with 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and some pepper. Add burgers to the pan and cook until browned and cooked through, about 5 to 8 minutes on each side, or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the sides of the burgers registers between 165 and 170 degrees F. Set aside to rest for 5 minutes. Serve burgers on a toasted bun or in a pita with toppings as desired.
