Ohhhhhh the preposterousness. How have I never ever thought of putting avocado inside a burger?Mixing avocado into the burger batter adds this fabulous velvety smoothness. The burgs are creamier, richer, divine-er. When I took the first bite, they were almost cheesy tasting. The preposterousness! These aren't your run of the mill dry, ugly veg burgers. They're moist and creamy from the healthy avocado fats and quite beautiful because they're made with lots and lots of love. I ate mine on a bed of spinach because I'm never prepared enough to buy whole-wheat buns ahead of time; but I imagine these would be somethin' else with a slice of melted sharp cheddar and more smashed avocado on a buttery toasted bun. Cue the drool. WAIT! Don't you dare forget about the sweet potato fries. Those are almost as important as the avocado. Not to brag or anything, but these are probs superior to most boxed brands since they don't have highly processed soy protein isolate topping the ingredient list. And would ya look at that-- we can all actually pronounce all of the ingredients! How magical. Avocado inside burger = DUH.
