Avocado Burgers

1 cup tvp
¼ cup rolled oats, ground in a blender
1 tablespoon flax seeds, ground in a blender
1 tablespoon vegetable boullion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried onions
½ teaspoon chili powder
¼ teaspoon cumin
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup boiling water

Mix all ingredients together with a fork. Taste and adjust spices (I doubled the chili powder and cumin). Let stand for 10 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Form into three thick patties. Spray or brush patties lightly with olive oil. Cook on a grill, or broil for 5 minutes a side. Top with avocado salsa.

Avocado salsa:
1 small avocado, diced
1 roma tomato, diced
1 green onion, green part only, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
juice of ½ lime (about 1 tablespoon)
¼ teaspoon salt

Serves 3
