4 servings   

Jamaican seasonings and grilling bring new flavors to ground turkey.

  • 1/3 cup couscous
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 3/4 teaspoon curry powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon spanish paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3/4 pound Ground Skinless Turkey Breast
  • 4 whole wheat buns, split and toasted
  • 4 slices large tomato
  •    lettuce

In a small bowl, combine couscous with 1/2 cup water; let stand for 20 to 30 minutes, or until couscous is tender and the water is absorbed.

In a small nonstick skillet heat oil over low heat. Add red peppers, garlic, thyme, curry, cumin, allspice, ginger, salt, pepper, paprika and cayenne. Saute for 1 minute, or until peppers are slightly softened. Set aside to cool.

Prepare the grill or preheat the broiler. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the couscous, red-pepper mixture and turkey; mix thoroughly but lightly. Shape into 4 3/4-inch thick patties. Grill over high heat or broil on a lightly oiled rack until broowned and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes per side. Serve on a bun with lettuce and tomato
