A quick and delicious recipe for juicy low-FODMAP Turkey Burgers, topped with fresh tasting low-FODMAP Asian Coleslaw. Perfect grill-out meal that is gluten-free too.

These low-FODMAP turkey burgers are a low calorie healthy choice, but have all the great flavor that you expect.

I like to top my low-FODMAP turkey burgers with the low-FODMAP Asian Coleslaw, but this also goes great with my low-FODMAP Refrigerator Pickles, and my low-FODMAP Special Sauce.

Although this recipe has not been tested, a single serving should be low-FODMAP based on the ingredients.

Serves 6

Prep time: 30 min (plus one hour or overnight for marinating coleslaw dressing)

Grill time: 15 minutes

Total time: About 45 minutes


For low-FODMAP Asian Slaw

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice (from 1 lime)

    • adjust this amount to your preference, it will be somewhat spicy

    • this is 2 low-FODMAP servings
  • 1 & ½ cups red cabbage, shredded
    • this is 1 low-FODMAP serving
  • 2 carrots, peeled and shredded
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves

For low-FODMAP Turkey Burgers

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 red pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 scallions, green tips only, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce (gluten-free if necessary)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Your choice of oil, for frying (or grill)
  • 6 low-FODMAP, gluten-free burger buns, rolls or thickly sliced bread
    • I like UDI’s hamburger buns


Note: I start with the Asian slaw so it has time to marinate

For the low-FODMAP Asian slaw:

  • In a small bowl, mix together the rice vinegar, canola or olive oil, garlic- infused olive oil, sugar, sesame oil, corn syrup, ginger, lime juice, salt and red pepper flakes
  • Cover and refrigerate, at least an hour or overnight
  • At least 30 minutes before serving, place the cabbage and carrots in a large bowl and pour the dressing over the coleslaw
  • Add the cilantro, and toss

For low-FODMAP Turkey Burgers

  • In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients for the burgers thoroughly
  • Pat the mixture into 6 large patties of equal thickness
  • Heat grill to medium, or place a large saucepan over stovetop set to medium-high and add desired oil
  • Place burgers on heated grill or skillet and cook thoroughly, turning occasionally
    • If concerns about outside burning, turn heat to low and cover to completely cook the inside of the burger
    • Cooking time will vary but around 10 minutes

  • This low-FODMAP Juicy Turkey Burger with Asian Slaw tastes as good as you think it does.  All those flavors combine to make it absolutely incredible. Add low-FODMAP Potato Chips, french fries or low-FODMAP Grilled Vegetables for a perfect meal.
