Is there anything avocados can’t do? The super-trendy ingredient has topped epic artisanal toasts and been successfully transformed into ice cream, cupcakes, pasta sauce, and more. And the versatile fruit (yes, it’s a fruit) is also the star of the latest and greatest Instagram food sensation: the avocado burger bun.
First created and shared by Dutch food photographer and blogger Colette Dike, the oh-so-simple, yet bizarrely facinating creation swaps the bun of a burger (or breakfast sandwich or veggie sandwich) with two halves of an avocado, resulting in this beautifully stuffed green orb.
Enticing esthetics aside, is the avocado bun at all practical? Probs not—though delicious and gloriously nutritious, avocados make a mushy mess. In an interview with Mashable, Dike said she thinks of the dish as more of a stackable salad than a burger in the traditional sense, and suggests going at it with a knife and fork.
If eating low-carb and gluten-free (while documenting it all on social media) sounds right up your alley, then the avocado burger bun is definitely for you.
