  1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine half of one avocado with the rocket, basil, garlic, mayonnaise and yoghurt. Whizz until smooth, then season to taste. Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the beef, egg, breadcrumbs, onion powder, Worcestershire sauce and some salt and black pepper. Mix with clean hands until just combined. Form the mixture into four equal-sized patties and set aside.
