1/4 cup Red onion (chopped - for topping)
1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil (for topping)
1 tbsp Balsamic vinegar (for topping)
1 pinch Sea salt (for topping)
1 dash Black pepper (for topping)
3 medium Tomato (for topping)
2 clove(s) Garlic (minced - for topping)
2 tbsp Basil, fresh (chopped - for topping)
86 gm Mozzarella cheese, partially skimmed (diced - omit for no dairy)
567 gm Ground turkey, lean (for burgers)
1 small Zucchini (grated, for burgers)
1/4 cup Bread crumbs, seasoned (for burgers)
1 clove(s) Garlic (grated, for burgers)
2 ring Red onion (chopped, for burgers)
1 pinch Salt and pepper (for burgers - sea salt)
3 spray (about 1/3 second) Olive oil cooking spray (for cooking)
2 medium Tomato (sliced, for serving)
4 cup Arugula (for serving)


1. Combine the red onion, olive oil, balsamic, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Set aside a few minutes while you chop the tomatoes, then place in the bowl. Add the garlic, basil and additional salt and pepper, to taste and mix well and set aside. Toss in the cheese when ready to serve.

2. Squeeze the excess moisture from the zucchini in a paper towel. In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, shredded zucchini, breadcrumbs, garlic, onion, salt and pepper. Form into 5 equal sized patties about 5 oz. each, forming them as flat as possible.

3. Heat a large skillet on medium-high heat. When hot, lightly spray with oil. Add the burgers to the pan and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook until browned, about 4 minutes, then flip and cook another 4 minutes, careful not to burn.

4. To serve, arrange 3 slices of tomatoes on each dish, then place 1 cup arugula on top in the center, then top with the burger and finish with the bruschetta.
