Thanks to Frontier Co-Op for sponsoring this yummy recipe!
Hey friends! Thanks for the awesome feedback on my last post. I’ve always really enjoyed compiling Q and A posts and that one was ESPECIALLY fun since you guys asked so many great questions!! Love it.
I am SO excited to share today’s recipe. It’s a savory one since we’ve been doing a lot of SWEET stuff lately (vegan ice cream cake, anyone?), but still perfect for summer.
I think of summer as burger season. We ALL know it’s grilling season…but it’s also perfect for all sorts of burger making too, don’t ya think?
These Greek Spiced Turkey Burgers have become a weekly staple for me ever since I made them earlier this summer and I thought it was about time I make another burger recipe now that we are almost all the way thru July. Side note: How CRAZY is that!? TIME IS FLYING.
Anyways, back to these burgers. They’re amazing, friends. SO flavorful and SO easy to make. I actually had my best friend in mind when making them because she doesn’t eat meat and really prefers easy recipes to more complicated ones. She’s not yet very comfortable in the kitchen…but it’s something we’re working on. 😉
I have to say the KEY to these amazing plant-based burgers are all the incredible spices and herbs that they include. Thanks to Frontier Co-Op, who sent me a goodie package of their high quality herbs and spices, I had an ample amount of fun ingredients to play around with when formulating this recipe.
On a whim, I decided to add a hefty dose of Frontier Co-Op Nutritional Yeast to the bean burger mixture and it took them to a NEXT LEVEL of greatness. Not only are they full of Italian flavors from the dried herbs and fresh summer parsley, but they have the most tasty cheesy flavor to them!
Sort of like Italian cheeseburgers…but MUCH better for you, of course!

Plus, they’re low in fat and calories as well. That just means more reason to top them will all sorts of goodies, am I right?
But let’s be honest, these burgers don’t need much added to them. They taste THAT good on their own. Like I mentioned above, I really attribute the positive outcome I had with this recipe to the delicious products that Frontier Co-Op sent me! I actually already have a few other recipes in mind to use them in since they are all just that good.
