Put these burgers on a whole wheat bun with sliced tomato, lettuce and avocado, and pair with a side salad to create a nutritious meal! Substitute bulgur in place of the barley to create a gluten-free version. For a delicious Greek-yogurt aioli topping, mix together plain Greek-yogurt, minced garlic, lemon juice and black pepper.
