1 pound ground turkey

3/4 cup finely grated zucchini

1/4 cup finely grated carrot

1 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon ground coriander

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

4 scallions, white and green parts, chopped

1 clove garlic, finely grated

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

4 seeded hamburger buns, split and toasted

Lettuce, mustard, thinly sliced red onion and pickle spears, for serving


  1. Combine the turkey, zucchini, carrot, chili powder, coriander, cumin, scallion, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a large bowl until well blended. Form into four 1/2-inch-thick patties and brush both sides with the oil.
  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the burgers and cook, turning once, until browned on the outside and cooked through, 5 to 8 minutes per side. Serve on a toasted bun with lettuce, mustard and red onion; add pickle spears on the side.
