4 black bean patties , or vegan burger of choice
4 organic buns
4 lettuce leaves
1 white or yellow onion, grilled
1/2 cup organic raw cashews soaked 2 to 4 hours, drained and rinsed (For a speedy soak, boil about a cup of water, turn off the heat and add the cashews. Let soak for 10-15 min. Drain and rinse with cold water.)
1/2 scant cup almond milk
1-2 Tablespoon fresh organic lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon pink salt or sea salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
3-4 Tablespoons organic ketchup (start with 3 Tablespoons of ketchup, if needed, add more to taste.)
2 Tablespoons organic relish
For the Spread
I suggest prepping the spread first to give it time to chill in the fridge.
Add your presoaked cashews along with the next 6 ingredients to a high speed blender or nutribullet. (leaving out the relish, that will be added after blending).
Blend until smooth.
Stir in the relish and place in the fridge to chill for 30 min.
Taste and adjust ketchup and relish. If needed, add more almond milk to thin.
For the Burgers
Prepare and cook your patties according to their directions. For an authentic patty, add mustard to one side and place that side down on the pan. Spread mustard on the other side of the patty before flipping.
While the patties are cooking, grill the onions (directions below) and prep the veggies: wash and prep the lettuce and slice the tomato.
Preheat your oven to 400º. Then toast the buns by lining a baking sheet with parchment paper and place the buns cut side down. Toast for about 5 min or until browned to your liking.
For the Grilled Onion
Chop your onion into small pieces.
Add about 1/4 teaspoon refined coconut oil to a pan or skillet along with the chopped onion.
Grill over medium-high heat until browned and caramelized, about 10-15 min. Stir frequently and lower the heat if needed.
Place your patty on the toasted bun. Add spread, lettuce, tomato and grilled onions. Serve with a side of thin cut, baked fries and of course extra spread.
