I really love the texture that zucchini can provide a meat dish.

You may already know, zucchini has a super high water content. Therefore, it usually needs to be squeezed out or “sweated” by sprinkling some salt on the zucchini and dabbing with paper towels.

This is true if you make a zucchini lasagna or if you use it in a meatloaf or meatballs.

Even with all the work to get the water out…it will still have a good amount of water. However, that’s a great way to keep moisture inside the meat!

I love how quick these turkey burgers are to make and the red onion adds extra flavor. The zucchini adds a bit of green and some fiber plus the moisture content as I’ve described!

I often find I don’t need a sauce when I use zucchini, however these burgers are yummy with a little dijon mustard, some bibb lettuce (my personal favorite) and fresh tomato slices.

Below are so other zucchini dishes on the site!
