Lately I've been really craving Spring. Last Saturday it hit 67° here in DC and what a joyous day it was! Every one was outside celebrating and soaking up as many rays as they could before the sun went down. As someone who hates cold weather (unless it's snowing) I was thrilled. I woke up at 8am just to get a run in outside. Later in the day I met up with friends and tried to go to Dacha, an awesome outdoor beer garden in DC. Unfortunately, it was absolutely packed so we settled to go somewhere else. Later that evening we had a little steak cookout on my friend's roof, which is always fun! I was not quite prepared so I ended up just getting a salad from Sweetgreen and bringing it to the roof.
This weekend I also did a lot of thinking. How can I make She Well more accessible to people who want to cook, but don't have the time? Enter new, exciting idea -- Millennial Meals. This new section of my blog will feature different recipes you can make in 20 minutes or less. The first recipe I am sharing is my 20 Minute Avocado Tuna Burgers! These tuna burgers are packed with tons of healthy protein and loaded with all the best toppings like avocado, tatziki and feta. I promise this recipe will change your (busy) life!I
20 Minute Avocado Tuna Burgers
What You'll Need:
+ 1 whole wheat hamburger bun
+ 1 frozen tuna burger (I used Trader Joe's brand)
+ 1 tablespoon Tatziki (you could also use mayo!)
+ 2 tablespoons fresh avocado
+ 1 tablespoon reduced-fat feta
+ fresh sliced tomato
+ fresh sliced onion
+ Take the frozen tuna burger out of the freezer and allow to thaw for ten minutes. As the burger thaws feel free to heat your hamburger bun in the oven on in a non-stick pan with a little butter.
+ Spay a non-stick frying pan with oil and bring to medium high heat. Allow the pan to get nice and out (about 1-2 minutes) before placing the burger on the pan. Cook the patty about 3-4 minutes per each side or as instructed on the box.
+ As the burger is cooking, prep the bun by spreading two tablespoon of avocado and one tablespoon of tatziki. Add the cooked tuna burger to the bun and top with feta, tomato slices and onion. Serve immediately.
