TURKEY BURGER WITH ROASTED SWEET POTATOES & SIDE KALE CAESAR

1 turkey burger patty

1 sweet potato, thinly sliced

½ cup yellow onions, thinly sliced

2 cups kale, chopped

1-2 tablespoons Bolthouse Farms Caesar Parmigiano Yogurt Dressing

nonstick coconut oil spray

 

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray a foil-lined baking sheet with nonstick coconut oil spray to coat. Add the sweet potatoes and onions and cook for 35-40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown and tender. While the sweet potatoes and onions roast, heat a skillet to medium-high heat. Coat the bottom with nonstick spray. Cook the turkey burger for 3-4 minutes on each side. Turn the heat down to low and cover the skillet with a lid, leaving a slight gap to allow the steam to escape. Cook for an additional 8-10 minutes (flipping halfway through) until the turkey burger is fully cooked. Serve the turkey burger over the roasted potatoes and onions and a side of the kale tossed with caesar. Serves 1.
