MY OTHER RECIPES

Now, let’s talk about this delicious Bunless Turkey Burger Recipe that is making my mouth watering just thinking about these goodies. I can say for sure that the stars of these burgers are the seasonings, the avocado sauce and the grilled zucchini. If you hate zucchini I bet it’s because you’ve never eaten them grilled, have you? For me grilled zucchini is the best way to enjoy zucchini. When you grill zucchini, the flesh softens, the moisture is evaporated and charred and smoky flavour is intensified. So good!
