Zucchini and Chicken Burgers

Fair Shares member Joanne McAndrews sent along a recipe she found that offers a great way to include zucchini in a non-traditional method: as part of a chicken burger. We've tried this trick with turkey using Ottolenghi's Jeruselem cookbook and had outstanding results! This recipe comes via Parade Magazine from Mostly Plants by Michael Pollan, famed author of Omnivore's Dilemma. 



The zucchini really keeps the burgers moist, which is great for notoriously-easy-to-dry-out ground poultry. The addition of onion, basil, garlic, ketchup, Worcestershire, green onion and salt and pepper will add great flavor.

Here's the Parade Magazine recipe link.
