1 pound ground lean chicken

1/2 cup finely grated zucchini

1/2 cup finely grated carrot

4 chopped scallions, white and green parts

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon ground cumin

2 teaspoon ground coriander

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

4 whole wheat burger buns

Sliced tomato, cucumber, lettuce, red onion and some plain yogurt


  1. Mix all the burger ingredients together except the olive oil. Form into 4 1/2-inch thick burgers. Brush burgers lightly with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook in a nonstick skillet over medium heat 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 on a toasted bun with the accompaniments.
