Ingredients

Directions

  • Salad: Prepare rice as package directs. Stir in remaining ingredients.
  • Heat outdoor grill. Mix rice vinegar and 1/4 cup soy sauce in a small bowl; set aside. Quarter 4 shiitake mushrooms and 2 scallions; pulse in food processor until finely chopped. Add to ground turkey along with remaining 2 Tbsp soy sauce and the ginger. Gently mix to combine. Shape into four 1-in.-thick burgers.
  • Generously coat burgers and remaining mushrooms and scallions with nonstick spray.
  • Grill 12 to 14 minutes, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted from side to middle of burgers registers 165ºF. Cut mushrooms in half.
  • Serve burgers with mushrooms and scallions. Sprinkle salad with almonds. Drizzle burgers, mushrooms and scallions with soy-vinegar mixture.
