School's Out. Holidays Are In!

Updated: Aug 25, 2018

Yippeeee! There's no better way to kick start the school holidays with a hearty and healthy burger, be it at home or outdoor (if you're planning for a picnic)!

This is definitely not your typical burger. It's also not a boring burger. Why I love this recipe so much is it's full of natural nutrients, visually colourful and yet packed with flavours. Most importantly. it's super EASY to make.......only 6 steps :) I'm sure you don't want to fuss too much with hungry kids waiting to be fed.

Serves 2-3 pax



  • 250g Minced Pork or Beef

  • 100g Minced chicken

  • 2 cloves Garlic

  • 3 slices Cheddar cheese

  • Salt & Pepper to taste


  • 5 Cherry tomatoes (diced)

  • 1 Red shallot (diced)

  • ½ Japanese cucumber (diced)

  • · ½ Freshly juiced lime & zest (large)

  • · ½ tsp Sugar

  • · A few sprigs of fresh cilantro (finely chopped)

  • · Salt & Pepper to taste

Avocado Sauce

  • 2 Avocado (peeled)

  • 1 Freshly juiced lime

  • 2 cloves Garlic

  • Salt & Pepper to taste


To make the Salsa

  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl, toss to combine. Refrigerate while preparing rest of recipe.

To make the Avocado Sauce

  • Add the avocado, lime juice and garlic into blender. Blend till it is smooth. Remove, season with salt and pepper and set aside in the fridge.

To make the Burger

  • Mix minced pork and chicken, garlic, dried oregano and sweet paprika powder in a bowl till the mixture comes together.

  • Form into patty and make a thumbprint in the middle of the patty.

  • Heat up a non-stick pan with canola oil over high heat. Cook the burger till golden brown on the first side (about 2-3 minutes). Flip over and cook the second side for 3-4 minutes; basting it with oil. Remove the patty, sprinkle with more salt and place cheese over the cooked patty immediately.

  • To assemble, slather the avocado sauce on the bottom of the bun. Place a burger patty on top, then pile the salsa. Top with remaining burger bun half. Serve with nachos and salsa.
