Gluten Free Sweet Potato Turkey Sliders
Living a Gluten Free Lifestyle
Some people choose to eat gluten free for the thought that it is a healthier choice and some are forced into a gluten free lifestyle due to allergies or intolerances to wheat gluten. No matter what ones releasing is to decrease the amount of gluten in their diet, most feel that once they take on a gluten free lifestyle they can no longer enjoy flavorful foods that they enjoy. A gluten free diet has gained an unpopular stigma over the years, but if one decides or is forced into eating gluten free as a long term diet, they should realize that that do not have to give up delicious foods for bland ones. There are a lot of companies that make gluten free breads, pastas, cereal, granola, etc. Some of these prepared gluten free foods have a fantastic taste and others taste bland, gritty and are undesirable. These products tend to contain unhealthy fillers and ingredients in order to replace the lack of wheat gluten which will create undesirable health effects. There are a plethora of foods such as vegetables, meats, fruits, grains, nuts, and seeds that are naturally gluten free and will aid one into living a more healthy lifestyle (and will not affect one with wheat allergies or intolerances). Learning how to cook and become creative in the kitchen will provide one with many opportunities to create delicious gluten free dishes that they enjoy, without wasting money on overly priced gluten free products.
- 1 medium to large Sweet Potato
- 1 lb Ground Turkey
- 1 slice Tomato
- 1 slice Avocado
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Wash the sweet potato and cut it into think round pieces to use as a "bun".
- Place aluminum foil onto a baking sheet, and spray some cooking spray onto the sheet. Place sweet potato rounds onto the baking sheet and bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes until the outside is browned.
- Take the ground turkey and form into small burgers and place on a Foreman grill (to drain any access and unnecessary fat). Cook the turkey fully, about 10 minutes. You may add any spices, onions and peppers to the ground turkey burgers if you wish.
- Once the turkey burger and sweet potato are full cooked and cooled, take two sweet potato rounds, and one burger (add a slice of tomato and a slice of avocado for a boost of flavor and texture) and stack together to resemble a slider.
- Eat and enjoy!
