Filipino-Inspired Veggie Burgers with Vegan Longanisa Mayo

By Rezel Kealoha

In this recipe, our California Veggie Burgers are nestled between atchara (Filipino-style pickled veggies) and farmers' market fresh squash blossoms, tomatoes and lettuce. Each veggie burger is topped off with sweet, garlicky vegan longanisa mayo for some Filipino flair.

Directions

Make the Atchara

  • Add more date syrup if you want it sweeter. Set aside.

 

Make the Veggie Burgers

  • Cook the veggie burger patties according to instructions on the box.

  • Set aside in a warm oven until the buns are toasted.

  • Drizzle the buns with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

  • Toast in a pan until each patty is golden brown.  

 

Make the Layers

  • Spread the longanisa vegan mayo on the bottom bun and top with the shredded lettuce.

  • Place a California Veggie Burger patty on top and layer on some tomato, squash blossom and the atchara.

  • Top with cilantro and drizzle more of the longanisa vegan mayo.

  • Finish with the burger bun and enjoy!
