Spinach Chickpea Turkey Burger

What on earth is a spinach chickpea turkey burger? Well, it’s exactly how it sounds! it has a little bit of spinach, chickpeas, and a part turkey burger. You can view the original recipe here for a completely vegetarian option, which only uses chickpeas, and I recommend using the whole egg, not just the white.

Feel free to experiment with your favourite spices and herbs. This burger has tons of protein and fibre and kept me full for hours!
