These turkey burgers were the second recipe we decided to try with Plated. I was most excited and intrigued by this recipe because I had no idea what gochujang was. From what I understand (please correct me if I’m wrong) it is a Korean fermented chili paste.
The gochujang was used in two different ways in this recipe-one, it was mixed into the turkey meat and two, it was stirred in with mayo to create a sauce for the burger.
Gochujang aside, I LOVE kimchi and burgers so I definitely thought that this would be my type of dish.
The dish had a side of sesame seed coated carrot fries instead of the usual potato variety. It was a nice touch and much appreciated since it prevented the us from scrummaging through the fridge to throw together a last minute salad!
The recipe was easy to follow and everything came together pretty quickly.
Now on to the taste…
Kimchi turkey burgers from Plated were a total win for the hubs! I on the other hand thought they were okay. I would have liked more bite…more kimchi or some red onions would have been great.
Despite this not being my favorite recipe I am still really enjoying Plated. We’ll see how the next recipe goes…I do believe that lamb tacos will be plated up next 😉
Let me know if there is anything else you would like to know about Plated or if you are a fan of kimchi and burgers! Till next time friends!
