turkey burger bowls with sweet potato fries and roasted tomato salad
Looking for a healthier alternative to a hamburger and fries? Try turkey burger bowls with sweet potato fries!
It will come as no surprise that over 70% of us resolve to be healthier in the new year, but research from Sainsbury’s reveals that in fact two thirds of us will spend almost a full day more (22 hours) watching TV in January and 1/3 of us end up eating more comfort foods in January than any other month. Great for crushing those box-sets, bad for keeping to your resolutions.
In an attempt to try and get a balance between satisfying foods and weight-concious, Sainsbury’s asked me to come up with a recipe that strikes a balance. Others have swapped beef for lentils, spaghetti for courgetti, and using avocado in a chocolate mousse. It’s called “ComFit foods”, classic comfort foods with a healthy twist.
I love a burger, but it’s not a healthy treat. So I looked at it and picked it apart so it was still recognisable and importantly good to eat. So here I’ve used turkey a naturally lean meat. I’ve added seeds for a good boost of nutrients, and crucially the bun is gone. So you don’t miss having fries I’ve also included quick oven-baked sweet potato fries.
So if you’re craving a burger but want to skip some of the guilt, try these turkey burger bowls!
