2 Ingredient Hummus Turkey Burger

It's the dead of winter and all I'm praying for is summer's hot days!  What better way to stay optimistic than to make a meal that reminds me of the season.

Flavored hummus is a quick way to create deliciously flavored dishes.  Not only is it versatile because of the endless flavor combinations, but it acts as a great binding agent for this burger without drying out the meat.  It actually preserves some of the moisture to give you a juicy burger which is exactly what I was craving!
