I hope you guys have as much fun doing this part as I do!


For the pickled vegetables:

In a pot on the stove, bring 1 cup white wine vinegar, 1 1/2 tsp of salt, 1 tsp of sugar, and 1 cup of hot water to a boil.


In a glass bowl, combine the radish, cucumbers, and carrots. Pour the vinegar mixture over the vegetables.


Refrigerate for 1 hour.

For the turkey burgers, pre heat the oven to 400. In a bowl add the ground turkey, green onions, salt, and pepper. Mix well.


On a piece of parchment paper form patties out of the turkey meat, then cook in the oven for 20 minutes.


While the patties are cooking, combine sesame oil, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, cumin, and shiitake mushrooms. Cook until the mushrooms begin to crisp up.


Remove the cooked turkey patties from the oven. They should be juicy and white in color.
