In this recipe, avocados elevate the traditional black bean burger to a meal that’s even more satisfying and nutritious, making it easy to shed the bread – so say “sayonara” to your sesame bun!
But it’s not just what’s on the outside that counts; the inside of this recipe is full of goodness too! You’ll blend black beans with oats, yogurt and spices for a burger that’s bursting with flavour. Top it with a slice of protein-packed melted Cheddar cheese and tomato, and “sandwich” that between two silky-smooth avocado halves for a fresh, healthy meal that will put the drive-through to shame.
Avocado wins a permanent place in our hearts thanks to its rich, creamy texture, versatile flavor and incredible health benefits. Did you know this superfood offers protection against heart disease and high cholesterol, with plenty of monounsaturated fat, vitamin E and soluble fiber? The healthy fats also help us regulate our appetites, keeping us feeling satisfied. Swapping the bun for the avocado makes this recipe a great option if you’re gluten-free or just interested in mixing it up.
A recipe like this one is the perfect opportunity to rediscover how playful and enjoyable mealtime can be. After all, being creative in the kitchen and engaging fully with your senses – sight and smell along with taste – can help create a healthy relationship with food.
So go on, have a little fun for dinner! Up your burger game tonight in a totally unexpected way, without compromising on flavor or health.
