By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

Burger works really well with Merlot, Malbec, and Zinfandel. Merlot will be perfectly adequate for a classic burger with standard toppings. Bolder toppings call for bolder wines, such as a malbec or peppery zinfandel. The Vampire Merlot with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 18 dollars per bottle.

Vampire Merlot

smooth medium-bodied with a fresh, black cherry aroma, and hints of herbal spices. aged in oak, our merlot develops graceful fruit flavors in the cellar, complemented by subtle shadings of vanilla and toast from the oak

Instructions

  1. In small saucepan, combine soy sauce, mirin, brown sugar, and ginger; bring to boil over medium-high heat, whisking to dissolve sugar. Reduce until slightly syrupy, about 3 minutes. Adjust heat, if necessary, to prevent boil-over. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely. (Sauce may be prepared up to 2 days in advance and refrigerated in a covered container.)
  2. Bring large pot of water to boil. Cook spinach for 1 minute. Drain and transfer to cold water bath to stop the cooking. Drain again. Dry thoroughly between layers of paper towels. (Spinach may be prepared up to 2 days in advance and refrigerated in covered container.)
  3. In large bowl, combine turkey, scallions, sesame oil, reserved spinach, and 1 tablespoon of reserved sauce. Season with salt and pepper and blend well without overworking.
  4. Form turkey-spinach mixture into 4 patties, about 3" across and 1" thick.
  5. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When hot, add patties and cook about 5 minutes per side, until nicely browned and cooked through. Lower heat if necessary to prevent burning. Serve with some of the sauce spooned over. Garnish with the sliced scallions, if desired.
