Grilled halloumi and pineapple veggie burgers with avocado

It was a huge hit in our home! Vegetarian burgers ready in about 30 minutes! This flavour combination is really brilliant. Delicious grilled cheese, sweet and sour pineapple, fatty avocado, aromatic and sour lime and coriander sauce, delicate lettuce. Scrumptious!

It’s ready in no time. I used store-bought brioche hamburger buns (with good ingredients), they‘re light and buttery. All you need to do is to mash the avocado, season with lime juice, spread on the buns. Cover with quick grilled cheese and pineapple, spoon the sauce over. Put lettuce leaves on top and cover with the other half of the bun. Ready! It couldn‘t be easier.

Give it a try, this dish is light, but also very fullfilling.

From the other half of the pineapple you can make this pineapple, banana and lime smoothie or pineapple, mango and coconut milk smoothie.
