My Favorite Quick Lunch

Avocado Black Bean Burger Tacos

Please excuse the poor photo. My husband has our camera in the trunk of the car… and the car is not here! Thank the Lord for the Blackberry!

I wanted to share this incredibly simple, fast lunch option that is quite satisfying and healthy! I hope this photo does it some justice. I’m sure I’ll take some better ones to post at a later date.

This meal consists of five ingredients, and virtually no work.

1 MorningStar Farms Spicy Black Bean Burger
1/2 ripe avocado, cubed
lemon juice
handful of spinach leaves, torn into pieces
2 romaine lettuce leaves, freshly washed
(choose nice, firm “taco” shaped leaves)

sea salt & pepper

Make sure to wash your lettuce leaves, and place on your serving plate. Next, place your torn spinach leaves into the “taco” shell.

On a separate surface, place avocado in a single layer. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over your cubed avocado. This really brightens the flavor of the avocado. I also salt and pepper it at this point.

Place your MorningStar Farms Spicy Black Bean Burger in the microwave for 1 minute. (Or feel free to grill it up.) Once done, cube the burger and place half in each “taco” shell.

Top with the prepared avocado and enjoy!

You could certainly also add other healthy toppings like tomatoes, onion, cilantro, etc. This is just what I typically have on hand and can whip up.

Please try these Spicy Black Bean Burgers! They are so flavorful, and can be used in all sorts of ways! Try other MorningStar Farms products and share your secrets!
