We love avocados very much. Avocado by itself doesn't have much flavor, but we like its creamy, smooth texture and the pretty green color. Avocados provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid, acting as a "nutrient booster" and good for the heart! I've seen some people use avocado to make ice cream or eat it with cereal. We like to use avocado to make sushi and guacamole, which is our favorite! We love guacamole in a burrito or a dip for chips. It's delicious and economic to make guacamole at home.
To make a simple guacamole, I just put together two ripe avocados and mash them, but I love avocado lumps, so I don't mash them too fine. Add 1 Tbsp lemon juice, one small chopped red onion, some chopped cilantro, and some salt.
This is my first time to try guacamole in a hamburger, but I know people have done so, and there are many pretty pictures on the web. The hamburgers are from Omaha Steaks. We made our own hamburger buns. It is a nice outdoor BBQ addition!
To make hamburger buns (makes about 6):
First, make a soupy flour mixture (14 g bread flour + 70 g water): Mix the water and flour in a pot, then heat it on the stove with constant stirring until you can see the obvious folding lines (about 150F). Remove the pot from heat. Cover and cool to room temperature.
Second, make the dough: Combine the soupy flour mix, 210 g bread flour, 56g cake flour, 20 g powder milk, 42 g sugar, 1.5 Tbsp butter, 1 tsp yeast and 85 g water together. Let it rise until the volume double in size (about an hour). Divide into 6 parts. Let rest for 10 min.
Third, shape them into round balls. Spray some water on top and dip them into sesame seeds. Let rise for another 60 min. Bake at 350F for 15-18 min.
