If there’s one food ‘trend’ I’m gladly embracing these days, it’s to eat less animal protein, and more plants. But that’s not to say my household doesn’t enjoy the occasional steak or burger.  And when we do, I make sure it’s quality meat, grass fed, hormone free.

And since my youngest Summer, continues to be unicorn-obsessed, when I saw this recipe for multi-coloured, confetti turkey burgers, I knew I’d have to try!

Posted on the website The Castaway Kitchen (you might remember those amazing banana bread pancakes I shared a while back!), these burgers are spot-on with healthy ingredients, free of wheat, soy and other allergens.  They’re also paleo-friendly, provide lean protein and healthy fat – you get the idea!

All you need is some ground turkey along with some staple veggies, a pinch of coconut flour and oil, and you’re done. Doesn’t get much easier than that, right?

Not only do the turn-out colourfully beautiful, you can make them slider-sized (as I like to). In a wrap, on a bun or a bed of greens, you can top them with mustard, cheese, mayo, etc. and they’re divine!


Eating up! Turkey Confetti Burgers


4lbs 92%lean ground turkey
1 cup minced carrots
½ cup finely sliced green onion
1 cup minced purple cabbage
½ cup minced baby bella mushrooms
4 tsp pink Himalayan salt
2 tsp ground ginger
¼ cup coconut oil (more to cook with)
2 rounded tbsp coconut flo


Heat a large cast iron skillet on medium heat. It will take about 10 minutes to come to temperature. In the meantime, mince and dice and slice all of your veggies. Add them to a bowl with the ground turkey. Add in the oil, ginger and salt.
Add in the coconut flour, mix in well then let the mix sit for 5 minutes.
Then shape 4 ounces patties and set them on a plate.
Lightly oil the skillet. Add 2-3 patties to the skillet at a time. Cook for 5 minutes per side until browned and cooked through. Repeat with all of the patties. Will make around 16 patties.
Store in a tupperware in the fridge, or freeze leftovers for another burger craving soon!


Make as sliders to double the number of patties.
