  1. In a large skillet heat half of the oil over medium heat. Add the onions and sauté until soft and translucent; do not brown. Set aside to cool.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine cooled onions, mushrooms, red chile and garlic pastes, black pepper and ground turkey. The mixture may seem very moist. Form into large patties and press an indentation in the center of each patty.
  3. Add remaining oil to the skillet, warm over medium heat and turn skillet to coat with the oil. Place turkey burger patties into the skillet and cook for about 7 to 10 minutes, gently flipping the patties several times to avoid charring. Remove from heat when center of patties reach 165 degrees F. Keep warm while preparing the buns.
  4. Mash ¼ of the avocado slices with the lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper if desired; spread on bottom buns and top with arugula leaves.
  5. Place cooked burger patties on top of the arugula. Top with tomato and avocado slices and season if desired. Place top bun over the avocado and serve immediately.

Serving Suggestion: Serve with California Avocado Coleslaw.

Variation: In a hurry? Use fresh or frozen turkey burger patties. Sauté the onions and mushrooms in a separate pan while the patties are cooking, then top the burgers with the onions, mushrooms, lettuce, tomato and California Avocados; season to taste.

Beverage Pairing: Iced tea or rosé wine.
