Southwest Jalapeno Burger

March 18, 2011 § 1 Comment

This was my first time making veggie patties and they tasted delicious! I adapted this recipe from multiple sources. It works in a sandwich, an afternoon snack or even as new addition to breakfast.

I love sandwiches, but they can be so plain. I always eat mine with a little something extra to give it that flavor boost or an element of surprise. This patty is great alone, but why not dress it up?

I wanted to go with the southwest theme, but give it a twist. I’ve had tons of sandwiches with avocado, but never an avocado spread. Below, I made a chunky avocado spread with baby heirlooms, parsley, cilantro and a touch of honey.

This spread goes great in sandwiches, on crackers and salads.

Let’s start with the patty.
