  • 1 12-ounce package broccoli slaw (about 6 cups worth)
  • 1 red bell pepper, julienned
  • 3 green onions, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh minced cilantro
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos, tamari, or soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon tahini or peanut butter (unsweetened)
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Juice and zest of 1 lime
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds


  • 1/2 pound ground turkey or chicken
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 2 green onions, sliced thinly
  • 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos, tamari, or soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Hamburger buns or roasted sweet potato rounds for serving


  1. Begin with the slaw. In a large bowl, toss together the broccoli slaw, red bell pepper, green onions, and cilantro. Set aside.
  2. Whisk together the rice wine vinegar; coconut aminos, tamari, or soy sauce; sesame oil; tahini or peanut butter; honey; lime juice and zest; salt; and pepper until very smooth and creamy. Pour over broccoli slaw mixture and toss to coat. Sprinkle sesame seeds over top. Set aside.
  3. To make the burgers: Preheat a grill pan over medium-high heat or heat a grill to medium-high. Combine the ground turkey or chicken; ground pork; green onions; ginger; coconut aminos, tamari, or soy sauce; black pepper; garlic powder; and salt in a large mixing bowl. Form into four large hamburger patties, then poke an indentation with your finger into the middle of each one (this keeps them from shrinking).
  4. Cook burgers on preheated grill or grill pan for 4-5 minutes per side, or until the middle is no longer pink, juices run clear, and the internal temperature reads 160°F.
  5. Serve on hamburger buns or sweet potato rounds with the broccoli slaw piled high on top.


Never heard of broccoli slaw? It’s a cole slaw type of mixture made from the stems of broccoli. You can find it in the produce section of most major supermarkets. It’s great because it stays nice and crisp when you put dressing on it—perfect for adding crunch to these burgers!
