My favorite type of dinner

Since we talked about my favorite breakfast, I thought I would share what one of my favorite dinners are.
It may look like a mess but it is oh so good.
First I make a turkey burger.  In it I add shredded carrots, finely diced onions, chopped kale, chopped jalapeño, one egg and a little bit of fresh bread crumbs if it seems too wet. For spices I usually add salt, pepper and crushed red pepper.
Then I sauté it in a little bit coconut oil.  I set it on top of a bed of shredded lettuce and top it with pickles, tomatoes, (banana peppers for Mike) and a spicy ranch, which is just ranch with a little bit of hot salsa or siracha.
The sides are zucchini noodles sauté with a tiny bit of cream cheese, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and then for another side I just some cut cucumbers.

I use very little ranch dressing and very little cream cheese but it is just enough to give it a little bit more flavor and satisfy that savory need that I sometimes want at dinner time.

This is easy to make kid friendly too.  I just leave out the jalapeños in the burgers and then make regular buttered noodles for them.
