Gluten-Free Pizza Burger
I make this dish every time I'm craving Italian pasta or pizza but want to stay away from complex carbohydrates and fuel my body with a nutritious substitute.
Serves: 4 burgers
1 pack ground turkey
4 tbsp olive oil
2 cups ricotta cheese
1 cup tomato & basil red sauce from a jar
Salt & pepper to taste
Section ground turkey into 4 equal parts and form each part into a patty with your hands.
In a hot skillet with olive oil, cook the turkey patties evenly through.
Slice eggplant into 1 inch thick slices, to resemble a bun.
In a hot skillet with olive oil, place the eggplant slices down to soften a bit. Season with salt and pepper on each side.
Assemble your Italian turkey burger: start with one eggplant slice, spread some ricotta cheese, spread the red sauce, add the turkey burger, top with more ricotta, fresh basil and the second eggplant slice.
