Homemade Kale Turkey Burgers

These burgers are great for barbequing and are high in protein! They can be eaten along side some sweet potato fries and asparagus or a house salad.  The kale adds only 100 calories to the overall recipe and provides lots of vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin K.

3 cups (750 mL) - Kale, finely chopped
1 each - Egg, large
4 Tbsp ( 60 mL) - Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp (15 mL) - Garlic powder
2 tsp (10 mL) - Onion powder
1 tsp (5 mL) - Thyme, dried
½ tsp (3 mL) - Rosemary, dried
3 Tbsp (45 mL) - Dijon mustard
1 tsp (5 mL) - Salt     Directions:
