    For the Sauce:
    1 small carrot, roughly chopped
    1 1/2-inch piece ginger, peeled
    2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
    1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
    1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
    Pinch of sugar
    Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

    For the Burgers:
    1 pound sushi-grade tuna
    2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
    2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
    Juice of 1/2 lime
    1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
    Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
    1 cup spicy sprouts, for garnish
    4 whole-grain hamburger buns
    1/2 avocado, sliced


Prepare the sauce: Pulse the carrot and ginger in a food processor until finely chopped. Add the vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce and sugar and process until smooth. Drizzle in 2 tablespoons water and combine; season with salt and pepper. Transfer the sauce to a bowl and set aside.

Prepare the burgers: Chop the tuna into chunks. Wipe out the food processor and add the tuna; pulse a few times to break up the pieces. In a bowl, mix 2 tablespoons olive oil, the soy sauce, lime juice, cilantro and ginger; season with salt and pepper. Pour over the tuna and process until well blended. Form into 4 patties; brush each lightly with the remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil.

Preheat a grill or grill pan. Once hot, add the burgers and cook for 2 minutes on each side for rare, or to desired doneness.

Toss the sprouts in the carrot-ginger sauce. Place the burgers on buns and top with avocado and sprouts.
