I have a thing for tahini sauce – Grilled Lamb Kebabs with Basil Tahini Sauce, Smashed Brussel Sprouts with Lemon Tahini Sauce, Farro Salad with Basil Lemon Tahini Dressing, Roasted Broccoli with Garlic & Basil Tahini Sauce, Grilled Shrimp Skewers with Green Tahini Sauce. So naturally, I had to make room for it on a burger. 

Today, I’m sharing a recipe with you for Veggie Burgers with Pickled Cabbage & Tahini Sauce. 

Basically a flavor bomb of a burger.

How to Make Pickled Cabbage

This pickled cabbage is super simple, and it only takes 20 minutes. Just combine some shredded red cabbage with apple cider vinegar and salt. Give it a good stir and let it sit. When ready to serve, drain of any excess liquid. 

How to Make Tahini Sauce

This tahini sauce combines greek yogurt, tahini, lemon juice and garlic. It’s creamy and tangy. Combine these ingredients then add in up to 2 teaspoons of water until it reaches your desired consistency. 

The BEST Veggie Burgers

I’m using Sweet Earth Enlightened Foods Burgers in this recipe. I recently discovered them and instantly fell in love with their texture. Much like a traditional burger, they have a meaty, juicy taste. On top of that, they provide 26 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber.
