Turkey Burgers with Adobo Honey Sauce
and roasted carrot fries

We combine our leftover adobo honey vinaigrette from yesterday with Greek yogurt or a homemade aioli (for the paleo members) to create a creamy condiment perfect for turkey burgers or vegetarian sammies. Eat it with a side of carrot fries and you have a 'fast food' meal that is fast but healthy!

  1. Heat oven to 400F (204C) degrees. Toss carrots with olive oil and spread out onto a sheet pan. Roast in oven for 25 to 30 minutes, giving a shake midway through. Season with salt and pepper fresh out of the oven.
  2. Brush patties and eggplant with cooking oil and salt and pepper. Heat up grill pan or skillet over high heat. Grill burger patties for about 4 minutes on each side. If burgers haven't reached 165F (74C) degrees, cover with foil, lower heat, and cook until they reach a safe temperature. If there is room, grill eggplant at the same time, the same way as the patties. Otherwise, grill patties first, and then eggplant slices.
  3. Sandwich patties between eggplant slices. Top with adobo honey sauce and tomatoes and enjoy with carrot fries. If there's extra adobo honey sauce, use it as a dip for the carrot fries too!
