My gluten free sundried tomato and basil turkey burgers are so simple to make, packed with flavour – plus they’re lean, healthy and low FODMAP too! I’ve even thrown in a low FODMAP tomato relish recipe for good measure. The combo is to die for!
Why does nobody ever eat turkey burgers?! You’ll seldom see them in supermarkets, you certainly can’t order one at a restaurant and you never even see a recipe for them. Until now! Here’s my gluten free sundried tomato and basil turkey burgers recipe with low FODMAP relish…
There’s definitely a reason that most beef burgers are best served with just a pinch of salt or pepper. They simply don’t need anything else to work!
(unlike me who needs several cups of peppermint tea to function)
But turkey mince is a complete blank canvas! It’s ready and waiting for you to add your own wild and wonderful flavour combos. Plus turkey thigh meat is so moist and meaty – it makes the perfect burgers.
Also, turkey mince is so gosh darn cheap… have I converted you to turkey burgers yet?
This recipe was created just from stuff we always had lurking in our cupboards – a jar of sundried tomatoes and a tube of basil puree. Throw in a little extra seasoning and some gluten free flour and… that’s it!
This is the type of recipe that I really love because it’s just so real. You don’t always have time to plan, plan, plan (even despite what food bloggers might have you believe!) what you eat.
Sometimes you’re forced to just ‘make do’ with what you have in your cupboards and I’m a firm believer that something amazing and mind-blowing is always possible with very little. All of my best recipes are made out necessity like that!
But for me – I really miss eating a damn good, sweet and sticky relish with my turkey burgers. I’m sure you can find some out there that are gluten free no problem, but for me, onion and garlic just do not agree with my stomach.
So that rules out pretty much every relish in existence then?!
Well, apart from one. This one!
After my turkey burgers recipe, if you keep scrolling, I’ll put my low FODMAP relish recipe afterwards. Trust me, if you haven’t been able to eat relish like I have, it’ll change your life!
Now if you’re not following the low FODMAP diet for IBS, then feel free to skip this part as it’s probably all gobbledygook to you anyway!
So, is this recipe low FODMAP? Yes! A low FODMAP portion size of sundried tomatoes is 2 pieces, so one of my turkey burgers is definitely low FODMAP.
The same goes for my relish. A quarter serving of my relish is low FODMAP too – awesome!
But if you’re combining the two together, you will easily bust the low FODMAP safe portion size of tomato. So I’d recommend not having more than one 1 tbsp of relish with your burger, then you’ll be a-ok.
You might have seen in some of the photos that I served my burger up with some rather beautiful sweet potato fries. That’s actually another recipe on my blog, so make sure you go and check out my sweet potato fries recipe with a herb and polenta crumb to go with your burger!
For now… just enjoy my sundried tomato and basil turkey burgers recipe!
