  • Chipotle Beet Bean Veggie Patties (desired quantity)

    Whole-grain buns or Bibb lettuce leaves, for serving

    Optional toppings: Lettuce or baby spinach, sliced tomato, sliced red onion and pickles

Lemon avocado sauce

  • 1 avocado, peeled and pitted

    ⅓ cup chopped English cucumber

    2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

    hot sauce, optional

    1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro

    ¼ tsp raw honey

    ¼ tsp each sea salt and ground black pepper


1. Place all sauce ingredients in a high-speed blender or food processor and process until smooth.

2. In a toaster oven on 350ºF, heat patties for 5 to 6 minutes, until warmed through. If using buns, place lettuce or spinach on bottom half of each bun. Top each with 1 patty, followed by about 1 tbsp Lemon Avocado Sauce and burger toppings. Sandwich with bun tops. (Alternatively, wrap burger patties, sauce and toppings in Bibb lettuce leaves.)
