Awesome Burger & Awesome Sauce
Ingredients
For the Burger
  • 2 whole-grain buns or buns of choice
  • 2 Awesome Burger patties
  • 1 tomato
  • 1/2 onion
  • 2 tbsp shredded red cabbage
  • A few lettuce leaves
  • A few slices pickled cucumber (optional)
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 2 slices of vegan cheese (I used my homemade vegan cheese sauce) 1 batch of Thousand Island dressing (see below)
For the Sauce
  • 2 tbsp cashew butter
  • 2-4 tbsp water to thin out
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp white vinegar or lemon juice
  • Salt & pepper to taste
Directions
1.

Thaw the burger patties in the fridge before cooking.

2.

Pan method: Preheat a pan on medium-high heat and add 1 tsp of cooking oil. When hot, pan-fry for 4 minutes, flip and reduce to medium-low, pan-fry for 3 minutes. Flip and fry for one more minute or until lightly charred.

3.

Barbecue method: Brush both sides of a patty with oil, then grill on medium heat for 12 minutes, flipping occasionally, until lightly charred.

4.

In the meantime, slice/chop the onion, tomato, red cabbage, and prep the other ingredients.

5.

Make the Awesome Sauce by mixing all ingredients in a small-medium bowl with a whisk. Use less water for a thicker sauce and more for a thinner dressing.

6.

You can warm the burger buns in the pan (or on the grill) for a few minutes if desired.

7.

Assemble in this order: Bottom burger bun, lettuce, tomato, red cabbage, burger patty, vegan cheese, homemade Thousand Island dressing, more lettuce, top burger bun.

8.

Serve immediately and enjoy!
