What a great idea for a recipe! I will try it with a touch of grated zucchini for the extra fiber plus a thicker burger. I will put the tomato slice plus the wonderfully nutritious avocado slices on it as well. Can't gt too much nutrition into our meals. There are no ways to rate this 5 heart recipe.
