My family has been trying to eat better. I am a diabetic and I also had open heart surgery to repair my Mitral Valve a few years ago, so we are trying to use more chicken and turkey in our diet. We really loved turkey burgers that we got in a fast food resturant, be we felt that we could do better at home. The problem was that the turkey burgers were really dry when we tried to make them ourselves. This recipe is the result of a lot of experimenting, until we found a way to make the burgers moister and not so heavy. Bread crumbs and an egg weren't enough so we added the vegetables and that did the trick.
