Back in my college days, one of my favorite go-to meals was a Boca Burger.  My girlfriends and I would share a box, and we each had our own way of eating them.  Some would top them with barbecue sauce, some used cheese.  My favorite topping was salsa.  Served with a salad, our Boca Burger meals were healthy, easy and super tasty!

I was very excited to learn about Boca’s new line, called Boca Essentials.  Boca Essentials includes three, bold delicious flavors, including:

  • Breakfast Scramble with potatoes, scrambled eggs and vegetables
  • Roasted Vegetables and Red Quinoa with brown rice
  • Chile Relleno with green chile peppers, black beans and brown rice

While I still love my Boca Burgers topped with salsa, I made this simple Avocado Cream recipe that is also quick and easy to make.  Just a combination of mashed avocado, Greek yogurt, a little lemon juice and some flavorings, Avocado Cream tastes so good as a topping on a wide variety of foods and is especially good topped on many Boca Burger varieties.

Avocado Cream
  • 1 ripe avocado, pitted and diced
  • ½ cup nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  1. Put avocado, yogurt, lemon juice and garlic powder in a bowl. Mash with a fork until fully combined. [Note: You can also use a food processor or high-speed blender instead of mashing by hand]
Swap the garlic powder for another flavoring, such as chili powder, to go with your meal.

As a busy mom who loves to be active, I know how important it is to get good protein in my diet.  As a person who eats meatless 95% of the time, that can be a challenge.  Fortunately these Boca Essentials vegetable- and grain-based patties are a great source of “complete protein,” which means they have the nine esseitnal amino acids that the human body needs but cannot product on its own.  While many of these amino acids are typically found in meat, each new Boca Essential contains all nine, to offer a protein-packed and delicious meatless alternative.

The three varieties of Boca Essentials are available at retailers nationwide and can be found in the freezer case at grocery stores.  A single, 10-ounce pack contains four patties and retails for $4.29.
