A simple California Avocado guacamole gets blended into protein burger before these veggie burgers are grilled, and more is added for topping. They are delicious for summer holidays or any day.

Ingredients

Serves: 4
1 1/2    ripe, Fresh California Avocado, peeled, seeded and mashed
  clove garlic, minced
  green onions, chopped
1/4  tsp.  salt
1/4  tsp.  ground black pepper
lb.  protein burger
  whole wheat buns
tsp.  ketchup, optional
tsp.  mustard, optional
1/8    red onion, thinly sliced

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados

Instructions

  1. Make a simple guacamole by gently mixing the avocado, garlic, green onions, salt and pepper together. Reserve about a third of the guacamole and stir the rest into the protein patties, being careful not to over mix.
  2. Shape into 4 patties. Grill or broil until done (about 3-5 minutes on each side).
  3. Top bottom buns with optional ketchup or mustard, add a thin slice of onion, top with burger patty and a dollop of remaining mashed avocado.

Serving Suggestion: Serve in a lettuce wrap instead of the buns.

Beverage Pairing: Cucumber-infused water.

Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
