Healthy Green Monster Turkey Burgers

A few months ago, I tried Gwyneth Paltrow's Middle Eastern Turkey Burger recipe and it blew me away! Seriously, they were the most amazing turkey burgers I had ever had. Whenever I buy ground turkey meat I always fantasize about making those burgers. This go around, I didn't have all of the ingredients Gwyn calls for, so I did my own version.
