Veggie burgers are one of my favorite things to eat. I love them as much as I love trying new burger recipes and different frozen products. Sometimes though, I get tired of the same old toppings and need to switch it up. I recently saw this burger in a recent Food Network magazine and decided to put my vegetarian spin on it.
I loved this version and wanted to share it with you. BL said it tasted like a sushi-burger, which I think is a good thing.
1/3 cup Veganaise
1 tsp. Sriracha
1/2 tsp. sesame oil
1/2 cucumber, thinly sliced
1 tsp. sesame oil
2 tbsp. Hoisin sauce
2 jalapenos, thinly sliced
4 veggie burgers
Mix together the Veganaise, 1 tsp. Sriracha, and 1/2 tsp. sesame oil. Set aside.
Rub the scallions with sesame oil and place onto a preheated grill. Grill each side 3-4 minutes until soft.
Add the veggie burgers to the grill. Grill one side, the flip. Lightly spread with hoisin sauce.
To assemble: spread the sriracha mayo on one side of the bun, layer with cucumber and jalapeno slices. Top with the burger patty and grilled scallions. Spread another layer of sriracha mayo on the top bun and place onto of the burger.
