Healthy Inspirations Recipe of the Week – Avocado burgers


These burgers look perfectly normal but pack a surprise – an avocado filling. Enjoy them with your favourite salads. Serves 8


1 kg minced beef
2 Tbsp black pepper
2 tsp salt
1 lemon, zest & juice of 1/2 lemon
2 ripe avocados, peeled and pit removed
1 cup sun-dried tomatoes, well drained


  1. Preheat BBQ or grill to medium-high. Combine the beef, pepper, 1 tsp salt and lemon zest in a large mixing bowl. Mix well and form into thin patties, all the same size.
  2. In another mixing bowl, combine the avocados, sun-dried tomatoes, lemon juice and the remaining salt. Mash the avocado and mix the ingredients well until smooth.
  3. Place the avocado mixture onto half of the patties, and top each with another patty. Pinch the edges of your patties together to seal.
  4. BBQ or grill for about 6-8 minutes per side.
  5. Allow the burgers to rest for 10 minutes and then serve with the remaining avocado mixture and a salad.
