Health Highlights
This low FODMAP Spinach Cranberry Turkey Burger recipe is a healthy grilling option that the whole family will enjoy.


1/2 cup Spinach (de-stemmed and chopped)
2 tbsp Green onion (diced; green parts only)
1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil, garlic-infused
454 gm Ground turkey, lean
1 medium egg Egg
1/4 cup Rolled oats- Gluten Free (or gluten free & low-FODMAP bread crumbs)
1/4 cup Cranberries (dried)
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce (gluten-free; see notes if celiac)
1 dash Salt
1/2 tsp Black pepper


  1. Preheat grill to medium heat.
  2. Wash spinach and green onion. Pull the stems off the spinach leaves and chop. Lightly pack down a half-cup measuring cup with spinach. Dice the green leaves of the green onion.
  3. Pour the oil into a small frying pan and heat over medium-low heat. Add the spinach and cook for 1 minute. Add the green onion and cook until spinach is cooked down, approx. 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  4. Chop the dried cranberries into small pieces. In a large bowl mix together the turkey, egg, oats, cranberries, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Mix in the spinach and green onion. Shape into four patties that are approximately 10 cm (4 inches) wide and 2 cm (3/4 inch) thick.
  5. Place the patties on the grill and cook for approximately 6 minutes until the bottoms have grill marks. Flip and cook 6 minutes more until grill marks are on the second side and juices run clear. The temperature of the burgers should reach 74°C (165°F) at the thickest part.
  6. Remove the burgers from the grill and place them on a clean serving plate. Serve on a bun or bed of greens.
