One of my kids’ favorite meals is this turkey burgers recipe. Not hamburgers, but turkey burgers, and I am more than happy to oblige and work it into my healthy recipes. Especially when their side dish of choice is blanched broccoli and baby carrots! I’ve been working hard on growing my herbs in containers outside this summer so I wanted to make sure I took advantage of the fresh harvest. I chose some parsley and rosemary – just enough to flavor the turkey without overwhelming it. You can use dried herbs, but they just aren’t the same.
Turkey Burgers Recipe with Fresh Herbs
It’s come to be that fresh herbs are just a staple in our house. Growing herbs indoors is so easy and the health benefits from freshly cut herbs really outweigh the dried ones, unless you you for a fact when they were harvested. If we don’t have fresh herbs at home, we purchase them and prepare them for storage when we arrive home from the grocery store.
Using Fresh Herbs
Rosemary and Parsley are among the easiest to grow and have so many health benefits! Whether you are growing herbs indoors, outdoors or buy them fresh from the store, make sure to lay them in a colander to allow moisture to dry, then wrap in paper towel and roll up and store in airtight container or bag. Parsley will last up to two weeks with this method!
