Ginger Peanut Burgers with Asian Slaw

Hey everyone! So, I recently entered a contest to win a grill/a year supply of veggie burger mix... yummy! PLEASE VOTE FOR ME!!! Just click here to vote... click the little thumbs up hand in the top right corner!!

Here is the recipe for the burger I entered. SO TASTY AND DELICIOUS!! You must try this. immediately. oh yummy.

Asian Slaw
1 medium baby bok choy
1 ½ c. shredded red cabbage
1 ½ c. shredded green cabbage
1 c. shredded carrot
½ c. chopped red onion
3 T. soy sauce
1 t. white miso paste
1 t. Chinkiang vinegar (use rice wine vinegar is you do not have this, or more soy sauce)
1 T tahini
1 t. sesame oil
1 t. vegan worcestershire sauce
¼ t. black pepper
½ t. crushed garlic
2 t. grated ginger
1 T. peanut butter

In a large bowl, combine bok choy, cabbages, carrot, and red onion. Mix well.
In a separate bowl, combine everything else – this will be the sauce for your slaw. You will think that you do not have enough, but it will be plenty!
Pour dressing on top of mixed vegetables and toss to coat. Cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3-4 hours. Remove from fridge and toss; some liquid will have formed on the bottom, and this will be great sauce to spoon on top of the toasted bun.

Veggie Burger
1 package Harmony Valley vegetarian hamburger mix
1 ¼ c. water
1 heaping t. grated ginger
1 t. crushed garlic
½ habanero, finely diced
1 t. soy sauce
½ t. sesame oil
1 medium tomato
1 medium red onion
½ c. chopped salted peanuts
4 Kaiser rolls sliced in half and lightly toasted

Preheat your grill (or heat up a skillet).
In a large bowl, combine hamburger mix and water. Stir well and set aside. Meanwhile, grate ginger, crush the garlic, and dice your habenero. Toss into the bowl. Add soy sauce and sesame oil. Stir well until all ingredients are combined; allow to sit until all water in absorbed and you are left with a thick hamburger mixture, about 10-15 minutes.
Divide mixture into four equal balls and flatten into burger patties, about 1/2’’ thick. Place on grill and allow to cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Flip and repeat on other side. Remove from grill and allow to cool slightly.
While burgers are grilling, slice tomato into four thick slices. Slice 4 thin slices of red onion.

Place burger on bottom of Kaiser roll. Place a slice of onion and tomato on top of burger, and spoon about ¼ c. Asian slaw on top of tomato. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts. Drizzle the top of the roll with sauce from the slaw. Place top of roll on top of slaw. Enjoy!
