Add the broccolini, bell pepper, sesame oil, salt and pepper and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until the peppers are tender. Add in the baby bok choy, and a splash of rice wine vinegar and cook for another 2-3 minutes until the leaves begin to wilt. Remove from the heat and set aside in a bowl.
For the vegan avocado mayo:
    1. In a blender or food processor, combine the vegan mayo, avocado, garlic, splash of water and olive oil, salt and pepper.
To assemble the burgers:
  1. On the bottom and top half, add a layer of avocado mayo. Then add the broccolini, bell pepper and baby bok choy. Add the portobello mushroom and additional layers of vegetables if desired. Enjoy!
