4 Everything Legendary Plant-Based Burgers
1 medium tomato ¼ inch sliced

Agave Mustard
¼ cup agave nectar
½ cup of dried mustard
½ cup of white vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil

¼ teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Caramelized Onions
2 tablespoons olive oil

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Combine all ingredients for Agave Mustard in a saucepan and stir constantly over medium heat. Boil the mixture until it turns thick, about 3 minutes.
  2. Pour mixture in a container with a lid and place in the refrigerator.
  3. Heat oil in a 12-inch cast iron pan over a hot grill, add onions and sauté for 5 minutes or until starting to soften.
  4. Add salt, place pan over to the cooler side of the grill and cook for 30-45 minutes, stirring every few minutes, or until the onions are very soft, golden brown, and caramelized. The timing will depend on the size of your onions and the heat of your grill.

  7. Spread agave mustard on bottom and top of bun, place grilled burger on top of bottom bun with caramelized onions.

Chef’s Tips

  • Grill slices of fresh pineapple and add to the burger for even better flavor.
  • No need to defrost the burgers. They grill up best straight from the freezer.
