- 1 small red or golden beet, trimmed, peeled and grated

- 1/2 small zucchini, trimmed and grated (1/2 cup grated)
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- Olive oil cooking spray

- Prepare tzatziki: In a medium bowl, mix beet, ¾ cup yogurt, ½ tsp garlic, dill and ¼ tsp pepper. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, mix turkey, onion, zucchini, remaining ¼ cup yogurt, 1 tsp garlic and ¼ tsp pepper and oregano and salt. Form into 8 1/3-cup patties; with your thumb, make a small depression in the center of each patty.
- Mist a nonstick skillet or grill pan with cooking spray and heat on medium. Add patties and cook for 5 minutes. (Tip: If necessary, work in batches to prevent overcrowding.) Flip patties and cook until no longer pink in center or an instant-read thermometer registers 165°F when inserted in center, about 4 more minutes.
