Cranberry Turkey Burgers with Arugula Salad

Ingredients:
¾  lb ground turkey
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup soft bread crumbs
3 green onions, finely chopped
2 to 3 tablespoons crumbled goat cheese
2 tablespoons pepper jelly
3 garlic cloves, minced

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Combine all turkey burger ingredients, mixing lightly but thoroughly.  Shape into four ½ inch thick patties; transfer to a greased baking sheet.  Bake until no longer pink, 10-12 minutes.  Heat broiler; broil until a thermometer inserted in burgers reads 165 degrees F, about 5 minutes.

Goes great with smoky cauliflower bites:
¼ cup olive oil
¾ teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon ground cumin
¼ teaspoon ground turmeric
1/8 teaspoon chili powder
1 medium head cauliflower, broken into florets
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Mix everything but cauliflower, then add florets; toss to coat.  Transfer to a baking pan.  Roast until tender, 15-20 minutes, stirring halfway.
Serves 4
