We’re always on a health kick here at GourGanics. We try to scour all the fun magazines for new exercises and ideas on how to stay fit and feel great. The most recent Self magazine had this amazing recipe in it. Where they used a little cayenne to spice things up–we used a little spicy GourGanics. We also swapped in organic ingredients. It was easy to make, oh-so-creative and tasted amazing. If you like a good burger but want to slim down or avoid red meat, you’ll be surprised how much this lower fat version saves you in calories, yet it still tastes delicious. Our next goal is to replace the chicken with 1/2 firm and 1/2 silken tofu and see how that tastes. We will publish those results right here. YAHOOEY !That’s for the inspiration, SELF magazine. Thanks !

Here’s whatcha need:

  1. 1/4 cup lowfat plain Organic Greek yogurt
  2. 1 teaspoon Organic Braggs Apple Cider vinegar
  3. 1/2 small organic red onion, divided
  4. 1 ripe organic avocado, cut into 1-inch chunks
  5. 1 cup thinly sliced organic cucumber
  6. 1/4 organic portobello cap
  7. 1 cup frozen organic shelled edamame, thawed
  8. 2 cloves organic garlic
  9. 2 boneless, skinless organic chicken breasts (6 oz each), quartered
  10. 6 tablespoons GourGanics salsa
  11. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  12. 4 organic gluten-free buns,  split

Here’s what to do!

Heat oven to 400°. In a bowl, whisk together yogurt, vinegar and 4 tablespoons salsa. Dice half the onion; add diced onion, avocado and cucumber to yogurt mixture; toss to coat. In a food processor, process portobello, edamame, garlic and remaining half of onion until finely chopped. Add chicken, and 2 more tablespoons of salsa. Pulse until chicken is chopped and ingredients are combined, about 12 times. Form mixture into 4 patties. Heat oil in a large oven-safe skillet over high heat. Add patties and cook, turning once, until both sides are browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Place skillet in oven; bake until patties are cooked through, 12 to 14 minutes. Place patties on bottom halves of muffins; top each with 1/2 cup avocado mixture and remaining muffin half. Add more salsa and enjoy !
