Now who would have thought that a burger could be healthy AND taste so ridiculously good? They say that seeing is believing but in this case– it's all about the taste of this bad boy. You'll also be pleased to know it is bursting with goodness, from protein-packed mixed seeds, nuts and butter beans, to the creamy goodness of nutrient-rich avocado and the juicy twist of vitamin enriched tomato and zingy lime. If you were ever a 'burger and fries' kind of person in the past, this is the perfect transition for a much healthier meal that won't leave you feeling 'greasy'. Plus, it's simply perfect with some cheeky sweet potato wedges– so dive right in!

INGREDIENTS

  • 40g almonds
  • 1 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 100g fresh garden peas
  • 100g butter beans
  • 30g fresh mint
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Himalayan rock salt
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 medium avocado
  • 2 gluten free buns
  • 1 beef tomato
  • 1 small romaine lettuce
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 lime
  • 2 wooden skewers

HOW TO MAKE

Prepare: Put the almonds, sunflower and pumpkin seeds in a food processor and blitz until they turn into a 'flour'. Keep a handful of the 'flour' to one side to coat the finished burgers. Put the peas, butter beans, mint, cumin, cayenne pepper and salt into the food processor and blend into a paste.

Shape: Divide the mixture in half using your (clean!) hands. Make into two burgers. Place the reserved 'flour' on a chopping board or plate, lay the burgers on top and lightly coat both sides.

Freeze: Place in the freezer for 10 minutes to firm.

Heat: Put the oil in a frying pan and pop over a medium heat. Add the burgers and cook for 6 minutes on each side.

Meanwhile: Using a bun, spread the avocado flesh like 'butter' on the buns, if going for the 'no bun' option, simply slice the avocado. Cut the beef tomato so you have two good slices.

Serve: Arrange your burger in any way you choose with the avocado, tomato and lettuce. Push a wooden skewer through the middle and BOOM– your burger is done!!
