Avocado Chimichurri Burger

You guys, summer is WINNING with this zesty burger! Chimichurri is one of my favorite sauces—it’s vibrant, has a little kick, and is so versatile…I’ve used it on everything from pizza to scallops to zoodles! We added a bit of avocado here to give it just a little creaminess. Because creamy is always better!

And let’s talk about those sweet potato “buns”. Oh.My.Goodness. Is there anything better than a grilled sweet potato, seasoned with just a bit of sea salt and garlic? I think not…except maybe when it’s covered in chimichurri!

Once all your pieces are grilled and ready, stack your burgers up high! I layered mine like:

  • Bottom “bun”

  • Avocado chimichurri

  • Burger

  • Grilled onion

  • Avocado slices

  • TONS of greens!

  • More chimichurri

  • Top “bun”

Feel free to throw in some pineapple, or AIP reintro’s tomato or cheddar cheese for variety!
