Blended burgers are a great way to add vegetables and legumes to a meal. This blended avocado burger combines ground beef, mushrooms, lentils, roasted red peppers and Fresh California Avocado into the burger patties, making them extra tasty and juicy. They are topped with tropical California Avocado Pineapple Relish and served in lettuce wraps.

  3. Place lettuce leaves on serving plates. Top with cooked burgers, then spoon on the mushrooms and California Avocado-Pineapple Relish. Serve immediately.
