One of my favorite recipes sources is still, two years later, Clean Eating Magazine. I'm not with it enough to know when the next issue is supposed to arrive in the mail, so when it does, it's like Christmas. I have to flip through right away, and check out the newest ideas. Spring has finally made its way to New England, and that means only one thing to my husband: it's grilling time! I went back through some old issues for any recipes that were overlooked, and rediscovered this recipe for turkey and chickpea burgers.
Turkey burgers are my favorite, and this is a great twist on them. These are quick to throw together and taste great!
