These are the best turkey burgers ever. Make sure to squeeze the water out of the spinach and follow the directions.

I made these a couple of weeks ago and loved them.  I had to cook them in a pan on the stove.  Next time I will put them on the grill rack in the oven.

Unclear to me why there would be any meat products here, when they're not a whole food, they're unhealthy, and seem to have a carcinogenic effect. (To say nothing of the harm caused to the turkeys and our planet.)  Seems so strange and antithetical.

Not everyone is able to do without some meat ... this is a healthier recipe than many that we grew up with.

Nutritarian does not mean vegan, though it can mean vegan.  It is a way of healthy eating that helps give us maximum nutrition and maximum pleasure out of our eating.  The healthiest way of eating is less than 10% of calories from animal products, which includes Turkey.  Please do not put down others' choices simply because they do not match your own, especially when your defnition of "healthy" and Nutritarian is not correct.  If you feel that you want to eat vegan, go ahead, just do not disparage others.  Therefore, this recipe is NOT unhealthy and it is not "antithetical"  to Nutritarian.  I would encourage you to read his books so you will not make such erroneous statements in the future. :-)

These are just the ticket when a tiny bit of meat is desired.  We've been nutritarian for 8 years, and vegan for most of that time.  However, lately, I have been craving meat for some reason, and so made these bugers.  Craving gone, back to vegan.  A bit of meat once every month or two might help anyone who is struggling to stay satisfied long term, and these are delicious!
