  1. Preheat the grill to its highest setting or light the barbecue.
  2. Mix together the vinegar and sugar until the sugar has dissolved, then add the onions and set aside to marinate while you prepare the rest.
  3. Toss the courgettes and peppers with the olive oil, then season well. Grill or barbecue until charred and softened (about 12-15 mins), turning halfway through.
  4. Meanwhile, make the red bean relish; mix all the ingredients together and season to taste.
  5. For the guacamole, mash or blitz the avocado together with the yogurt and lime juice.
  6. Cook the burgers according to the pack instructions.
  7. To serve, divide and lay the salad leaves in the corners of 4 large bowls. Divide the roasted veg in another corner, then pile on a few spoonfuls of the relish. Top each bowl with the guacamole and a burger patty, then sprinkle over red chilli and serve with tortilla chips, if you like.
