Dukan Spicy Miso Turkey Burgers

We both loved these.

Spicy Miso Turkey Burgers
The female half of this couple wanted to make jalapeno burgers to use up the ground turkey we have in the freezer to make room for the fish filets we are picking up at Costco...but she left the jalapenos at her house.  Decided to scrap that idea and searched for a miso burger recipe.

Decided to try this recipe...added some spicy chili paste to it since we both love spicy food.  Also increased the amount of miso and oat bran.  Next time we'll add either some chopped oyster mushrooms (which we forgot we had) or chopped water chestnuts for texture.

Serves 3
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes if you have a small pan like we do

1 lb. ground turkey (lean)
3 T. oat bran (omit if you prefer a juicier turkey burger)
3 T. finely chopped green onions
3 T. organic white miso paste
1 T. chili paste (sambal oelek)
1 T. sake
1/4 c. egg whites

Mix all ingredients, shape into patties.  We made 6, you can make mini burgers too.  Pan fry them or grill them until no longer pink.

If you want a stronger miso taste we would add another tablespoon of miso paste and if you want more heat, 1/2 T. chili paste should do it.
