Raw Vegan Avocado Burger

  3 rater(s)

No buns, no problem! This recipe uses avocado halves as the buns, so get ready for a healthy dose of omega-3s, potassium, and magnesium. One of the key steps is marinating the carrots, which go inside the “burger.” Allow at least 30 extra minutes to marinate to let the carrots absorb those flavors.

  • Prep Time: 10m
  • Total Time: 10m

Ingredients

For the Marinated Carrots

  • 1 carrot, shaved into thin strips on a mandoline
  • 1 tbsp. coconut aminos
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • pinch of sea salt & pepper
  • dash of cayenne pepper (optional)

For the Burger

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 lettuce leaf
  • 1 thick tomato slice
  • sesame seeds to top (optional)

Instructions

For the Marinated Carrots

  1. After shaving the carrots into thin strips using a mandoline, add them to a bowl.
  2. Pour the coconut aminos, olive oil, sea salt, pepper, and cayenne over the carrots and mix up. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place it in the fridge for 30 minutes.

For the Burger

  1. While the carrots are marinating, prepare all the ingredients for your burger.
  2. Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Carefully remove the peel either by peeling it or spooning each half out very gently. The goal is to keep each half intact.
  3. Place one half of the avocado, cut-side up, on the plate and place the lettuce leaf and tomato slice on the avocado.
  4. Remove the bowl of carrots from the fridge and arrange them on top of the tomato slice.
  5. Close the burger with the other avocado half and top with sesame seeds. Now, dig in!
