For the Persimmon Orange Salsa:

  • 1 fuyu persimmon stemmed, sliced, and chopped into small dice (about 1 cup)
  • 2 clementine oranges or (1) medium navel orange peeled, sliced width-wise, and cut into bite sized pieces (about 1/2 cup)
  • 2 green onions sliced (both white and green parts)
  • 1 red bell pepper cored, and cut into small dice (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 anaheim chile cut into small dice (discard seeds if you'd like to keep the heat mild)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the Avocado Cream:

  • 1 large avocado pitted
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt sour cream may be substituted
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed cilantro leaves
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the veggie burgers:

  • 8 MorningStar Farms Spicy Black Bean Veggie Burgers
  • 8 Hamburger buns


Prepare the salsa:

  • Place all ingredients into a medium bowl and stir to combine. Allow to stand at room temperature for a minimum of 30 minutes for the flavors to meld.

Prepare the avocado cream:

  • Place all ingredients into the bowl of a food processor and pulse until smooth, scraping down the sides as necessary.

Prepare and assemble the burgers:

  • Preheat the grill to medium heat or cook the burgers on the stove top according to package instructions. Cook 3 minutes or until grill marks are visible, then flip and cook an additional 3 minutes or until heated through.
  • Turn off the grill and place the buns on the grates with the lid closed until toasty and warm, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Place the burgers on the buns, and top with salsa and avocado cream. Serve and enjoy!


  • Avocado cream is best served the day it's made as the avocado will turn brown over time.
