Step 1

Place half of the avocado in a bowl and mash with a fork until almost smooth. Add yogurt, mayo, lime juice and cumin and stir to combine. Dice remaining half of the avocado and add it alongside ¼ teaspoon salt. Stir gently to combine. Set aside.

In a bowl season ground beef with ½ teaspoon of salt, black pepper and chili powder and mix well.

Preheat grill (or grill pan) to medium-high heat. Grill patties 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.

In the meantime, lightly grease with olive oil a medium non-stick pan/skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Cook halved tomatoes face down for 2 to 3 minutes, until they begin to brown.

To assemble burgers, place a large pinch of sprouts on the bottom part of each tomato, top with a beef patty, about 2 tablespoons of avocado sauce and finish with the other half of each tomato.
