Avocado-Suya Burger

All weekend, I’ve been thinking about this burger. Inspired by vegan burgers on @3.Bunnies Instagram’s account, I made a #NewNigerianKitchen, #Whole30 compliant version.

 

You hass to try one of our Teriyaki Avocado Burgers ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ™ˆ We took a small break away from social media to enjoy somebunny’s(Christina’s) birthday ๐ŸŽ๐ŸŽˆ Sometimes it’s nice to fall off grid for a few days and get lost in the mighty forest ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒฒโ›ฐ What has everyone else been up to this week? Sending good vibrations everybun’s way on this cold Wednesday ๐Ÿ˜ฌโ„๏ธ

I guess when you hit 40, you begin to look at life differently. I’ve decided that I want to get fitter – exercise more because apart from sweating in the kitchen, I haven’t really been working out.

I want to reduce my carb intake – maybe save that for sweets and desserts :).

Anyhow, here’s my version. It includes:

Avocados
Lettuce
Tomatoes

Lime-pickled onions which are amazing
Sauteed green peppers
Black sesame seeds

Here’s how:

Begin with a good avocado – ripe but firm.

Cut it in half, remove the seed and using a tablespoon, seperate the flesh from the skin.

I sliced a bit off the halves – about 1 centimetre – I saved it for a salad ๐Ÿ™‚
Next, the layering on one half of the avocado – lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and then the suya-spiced beef patty. 

Yum!!!!!!!!

Messy :), yes – definitely a two-handed operation but I loved it.

The avocado was creamy, not overly so. The spice from the patties cut the richness with the crisp, crunch and freshness of the vegetables. The lime-pickled onions are a must with the citrus fragrance and flavour tempering the onion’s bite.

What a delicious Sunday morning breakfast. Have a good one!
