This Green Goddess Veggie Turkey Burger on a salad was super tasty. Smothered in Green Goddess dressing, obviously even better. But clearly it needed a moment snuggled into a crusty ciabatta bun. Because crusty and ciabatta. And yuuuuuu.

I will never tire of a good burger or chicken sandwich. NEVER. Always top of my list at a restaurant…and one of the best ways to repurpose any leftover protein we’ve got lying around at home. Give me a mile of toppings and a generous layer of some yummy sauce. I can even turn a blind eye to the fact that the boys will be having theirs with zero (to one) toppings, and ketchup *tears*– because I’ll be too distracted loving MINE.

How to Make a Green Goddess Veggie Turkey burger on Ciabatta

You need this recipe for Green Goddess Veggie turkey burger on Ciabatta. www.lillieeatsandtells.com

First, spray your ciabatta with a little olive oil spray and toast face down in a pan until golden brown. Toasted is ALWAYS better. If your roll seems so fresh and soft that you doubt the toast. Ignore your doubts. TOAST THE BUN.

I love to hollow out the inside of the Ciabatta roll. Of course it shaves off a few carbs, which might seem insignificant, but if you count macros, every little bit adds up and it’s fun to know you can save them for the things you love most if you chose! But mostly, I love that it makes a perfect pocket to hold all your Green Goddess slaw. I toast the bun face-down in pan first, then carefully pull out the soft insides, making sure to leave the outside intact. For the macros I’ve listed for this sandwich, you’ll want to get the weight of your bread to 75 grams. But obviously, skip this altogether if you don’t care about that! Not trying to make you obsess over the weight of your roll. I just want to give you options if you want them. Because that’s what friends do. xx

Once your Ciabatta is toasted, it’s time to start building this TASTY Green Goddess burger. Grab avocado, Green Goddess Slaw, Green Goddess Dressing, your Veggie Packed Turkey Burger and pickled onions. I like smashing avocado onto the bottom bun with a good pinch of salt. I don’t ever want to see avocado without salt. Mmkay? Add the Veggie Packed Turkey burger, Green Goddess Slaw, a drizzle of Green Goddess dressing, and pickled onions. Throw on some extra fresh cilantro or other herbs if they’re handy. I hope you love it!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Spray your ciabatta with a little olive oil spray and toast face down in a pan until golden brown. *If you want to shave off a few carbs and make more room for the slaw to stay put, hollow out the inside as best you can, by ripping out the bread carefully, making sure to leave the outside intact. It’s easier to hollow out AFTER toasting. You want to get the weight to 75 grams to match the macros of this recipe. But obviously skip this all together if you don’t care about that!
  • Smash avocado on to the bottom bun and sprinkle with salt.
  • Add the burger, slaw, a drizzle of Green Goddess dressing, and pickled onions.
  • Throw on some extra fresh cilantro or other herbs if they’re handy. Enjoy!

Notes

Since one burger is so light, you might want another on the side with a simple green salad or more slaw. OR, you could enjoy two open faced burgers on each half of your ciabatta. You can log this meal as is, but you can also find the burger and slaw individually in MFP for easy customization.
