Super Slim Burger Recipe


2 servings


  • 1/2

    lb lean ground turkey

  • 1/4

    cup chickpeas

  • 1/4

    cup egg whites

  • 1/2

    tsp. ground garlic

  • pinch of salt

  • pinch of pepper

  • 4

    portobello mushroom caps

  • Favorite burger toppings


STEP 1: Preheat grill. If you don’t have a grill, you can make them in a pan.
STEP 2: In a bowl, combine ground turkey, chickpeas, egg whites, garlic, salt, and pepper. Stir well to combine. Form 2 patties.
STEP 3: Put on the grill and cook on each side for about 5-7 minutes, depending on how thick your patties are. If you're using a pan, cook covered for about 7 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of your patties, until cooked through. Press with a spatula after flipping.
STEP 4: Form your burger with the mushrooms caps as the “bun” and add your favorite toppings. We love 1⁄4 avocado, ketchup, mustard, red onions, and leafy greens. We also love pairing this with grilled asparagus and lemon!

  1. Hey girl!
    They’re in the oven for about 10-14 minutes, but this depends on how thick your burger patties are. Make sure to check to see that they’re cooked through all the way! You just have to stir the chickpeas in! It gives amazing texture to the burgers :)

    1. Thanks for sharing I was going to ask the same question as well can’t wait to try them out :)

    1. I was just thinking the same thing. You could try aquafaba or applesauce. I can’t exactly decide what the best vegan friendly sub would be for taste.

  2. hello! for Wednesday #7dayslimdown supper meal ;slim down burger , do we eat the 2 servings (since the recipe makes two) or that extra one we keep it aside for Thursday’s lunch.

  3. Meal prepped these yesterday for the week and had one for dinner last night.. SO good! Definitely will be a new summer go to :)

  4. Looking forward to Wednesday to make these! I was wondering: do you keep the portobellos raw?

      1. Thanks! I made them just now and grilled the mushrooms. They are so delicious!! I’m gonna impress my colleagues tomorrow at lunch :)
        I made a little mistake calculating lbs to kg so they were a bit fluid. Fixed it with some arrowroot flower and they turned out pretty good. Almost nailed it :)

  5. I want to make these for dinner tonight! For the life of me I can’t remember how much chicken broth/stock to add to make the burgers juicier. Please help!!!! Thanks!

  6. I have the nutrition plan and the 7dsd doesn’t have any of the recipes or new ones? I’m confused! Do I just use the regular plan? Thanks!

    1. Hi babe! You should have received the new edition of the 7 Day Slim Down with your meal-by-meal guide in your email. You can also find it under the “My TIU” tab. If you didn’t receive it or you’re having any trouble, you can reach out to our girl Stephanie at [email protected] and we’ll take care of you!! xxo

  7. Omgee made these as I’m doing the 5DSD and ate last night for din-din, they are the bomb! I actually forgot to add the chickpeas, but they still cooked up nicely and the flavor was still on point. Thanks for this now, go-to recipe I’ll be whipping up even after the 7DSD.

  8. I made them last night & I’m in love. They are so delicious. I usually crave a burger when my monthly friend comes, now I’ll be making this one 😋🤤🍔

  9. I made them last night & I’m in love. They are so delicious. I usually crave a burger when my monthly friend comes, now I’ll be making this one 😋🤤🍔

  10. I attempted to meal prep these last night (I am on the vegetarian meal plan) so my burgers have tempeh instead of turkey.
    They would not form into patties. :-( Any suggestions? Thank you!!

    1. If your tempeh won’t form patties, you can also try grilling the tempeh straight and using that as your “burger”!

  11. OMG I can’t even WAIIIIIT! #TIUhubby can’t wait either lol sooo last night I prepped the burgers so all we have to do is throw them on the grill. But I made an oops, instead of doubling the recipe for Chad and I, I quadrooped it lol soooo we have 4 in the freezer for next week lolol

  12. Made these for dinner last night, and they were SO good! The boyfriend also approved! It’s nice to find something filling for him to eat that’s TIU approved. :)

  13. Anyone tried to replace the tempeh with anything that’s soy-free? I’m planning to do the burgers this week & I can’t come up with a good replacement… help a girl out, please 😂💞

  14. I made these a couple of times, love the idea but the flavour didn’t turn out great for me (made the veg version)! I’m not a very experimentative cook… does anyone have ideas to add more flavour? Herbs, spices, maybe veggie add-ins?
