BlogHer and MorningStar Farms have compensated me for this post. I am happy to partner up to bring you new recipes!
A simple homemade avocado hummus makes a perfect topping for any burger!
I love sneaking different foods into our diets. I’ve been known to stare down my husband as he begins to eat his dinner. When I do this, my husband knows instantly that dinner is hiding a surpise ingredient, like pumpkin in our chili or chocolate in our grilled cheese. I’m just trying to keeping things fresh, exciting and tasty!
I did it to my husband again. I surprised him with these MorningStar Farms Roasted Garlic & Quinoa Burgers. I made a quick avocado hummus topping, cut up garden fresh yellow tomatoes and served them up! Sometimes you have to look beyond fish and chicken when it comes to dinner. You want to keep things healthy but you also want to keep your taste buds guessing! MorningStar Farms makes it easy to eat smart, whether you go meatless every day, or every now and then. And I love that they are always creating and introducing new products and flavors. My meat and potatoes man had no trouble devouring these Roasted Garlic & Quinoa Burgers! The kids are their fair share too!
The avocado hummus was so simple to prepare. A can of chickpeas, avocados, tahini and Greek yogurt are basically all you need! Your food processor does the labor so you can do the eating. The avocado and yogurt make this hummus especially creamy and smooth. It made quite the burger topping, but it would make an outstanding dip too!
Big, juicy burgers will always have a place on our plates, but all 12 MorningStar Farms veggie burgers are a good source of protein and the fact that they can be made right on the grill is a huge bonus!! My family happily ate these avocado hummus and quinoa burgers! And I felt good serving them up!
