Green Goddess Sauce Preparation

  1. Put the ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. Transfer to a bowl.

Turkey Burgers Preparation

  1. In a medium bowl, add the ground turkey, onion, garlic, almond meal or almond flour, Dijon mustard, paprika, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  2. Divide the meat into four equal parts and form them into 1/2-inch-thick patties that are slightly wider than the buns. (The burgers will shrink as they cook.)
  3. In a large frying pan on medium heat, add the olive oil. When the oil shimmers, add the four burgers, leaving space between them.
  4. Cook the patties for 3 to 4 minutes. Flip them and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes, or until their internal temperature registers 165 degrees.
  5. Assemble the burgers by spreading mayonnaise on the bottom half of each bun. Top with a patty, then the green goddess sauce, onion, avocado and lettuce. Place more green goddess sauce on the top half of the bun, and combine the two halves.
