How was everyone's July 4th weekend? Our was great but after all the beach, sun, burgers and hot dogs, I was drained and needed something easy and to use up some leftovers. So, I turned to my freezer and produce bin. I had an aging avocado, half a red pepper, some red onion, salad mix, 4 corn on the cob and some whole wheat hamburger rolls. And in my freezer, I had some BOCA chick'n patties so I went to work.
I first put water on the stove for the corn and then mashed the avocado. I tossed in some cilantro from our garden together and salt in with the avocado and mixed it well. I then heated the chick'n patty, assembled the remaining ingredients on the bun and was ready for dinner.
The buns I used were sent to me as part of the FoodBuzz featured publisher program as Nature's Pride is trying to overhaul their bread line. They are removing all the artificial flavors and preservatives and that I applaud.
