Diabetes-Friendly Turkey Burgers with Garlic Sweet Potato Fries
1.5 lbs ground turkey
1 cup portabella mushrooms
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons cumin
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
1/4 cup tapioca flour
2 tablespoons almond meal
1 tablespoon coconut aminos
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
Extra virgin olive oil
12 slices sprouted grain bread, sourdough or pumpkernickel
1 cup shredded mozarella cheese
2 tomatoes, sliced
1/2 red onion, sliced
1/2 bag fresh spinach
salt and pepper, to taste
Sweet Potato Fries
2 large red or orange kumara sweet potatoes
1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon paprika
2 garlic cloves, minced
salt and pepper, to taste
1. Using a food processor or blender, blitz the mushrooms and the garlic until roughly to semi-finely chopped.
2. Beat the egg in a large bowl. Add the mushroom/garlic mix, plus the cumin, basil, tapioca flour, almond meal, coconut aminos, and apple cider vinegar. Mix well. Add the ground turkey, salt and pepper, to taste, and mix well with the ingredients until fully blended.
3. Shape the turkey into 6 evenly-sized patties. Set aside.
4. Heat a large fry pan on medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon of coconut oil, melt, and spread evenly across the pan. Toast 2 bread slices at a time, 1-2 minutes per side. Repeat, using 1 teaspoon of coconut oil per 2 slices. Set toasted bread aside.
5. Continue heating the fry pan on medium heat. Add 1/2 tablespoon olive oil and place 2 turkey patties onto the pan. Use a thick metal spatula to gently but firmly flatten the patties. Cook for 4-5 minutes per side.
6. Upon flipping each pattie, add a pinch of mozarella to the top of each pattie. Repeat, cooking the remaining patties, using 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil per 2 patties.
7. Layer each burger with a slice of toasted bread, spinach, turkey pattie, tomato slice, a red onion slice, and any condiments you like. (NOTE FOR DIABETICS: Be aware that most store-bought ketchups and mustards contain high amounts of sugar) Top off the burger with another slice of toasted bread.
Garlic Sweet Potato Fries
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 C)
2. Cut sweet potatoes into thin sticks.
3. In a medium to large bowl, add the potatoes, olive oil, paprika, garlic, and salt and pepper, to taste. Mix well, until potatoes are thoroughly coated.
4. Place the potatoes on an oven-safe baking dish or lined baking tray.
5. Bake in the oven for 30 – 35 minutes, tossing halfway through, and bake until golden brown.

What he says about bread is very true. All bread contain a lot of carbs and carbs turn into sugar when you eat them. I make my own low carb bread using almond meal. Another bad thing to eat are potatoes including sweet potatoes along with rice and pasta. They all will spike sugar levels.
More red meat BS
I let my stomach decide.
Would a person be able to use chickpea flour as a binder instead of the tapioca? I bought a bag of it the other day and have been trying to find good uses for it.
I really enjoyed the teaching God bless you
It’s the dang holder the BREAD>>>
All bread is very bad for diabetics.
Extra virgin olive oil can’t be used for cooking.
Some other great alternatives to the bun are slapping that patty of meat between a couple of eggs or between the halves of a bell pepper.
WOW GREAT information, thank you so much for the recipe
Is it okay to have one meal of a burger once a month
whole wheat buns, bean (plant based) patty and some veggies. Won’t spike your blood sugar too much because beans are starch blockers and make your blood sugar spike less.
Yeah man sweet potatoes are so bad even tho the okinawans ate them and never got diabetes
Carbs arent bad its just the meat.
When u eat red meat it triggers so many things in the body. And it also increases diabetea risk so i do not know why so much people are getting lied to by carnivore doctors. 92% of the studies that support animal products are funded by the animal industry.
@Grandpa Павлески Carbs are bad if you are a diabetic.
