Mango Slaw, Wasabi Mustard and an Asian Inspired Veggie Burger

I had not really planned on publishing these recipes as well, they are not much in terms of recipes, but I had a couple of Twitter/Facebook requests for them so why not?  The Wasabi Mustard alone is worth a post- delicious.

I will admit that this dinner was inspired by an episode of Rachel's Kitchen. I am not a big Rachel Ray fan, but her tuna burgers caught my eye- mostly because of the wasabi mustard and pickled ginger she garnished the burgers with. And she used black sesame seeds, something I really like.

The mango slaw was inspired by something I often get in my work cafeteria (yes, work cafeteria!). It came together really well and was also really simple to put together.

I had a premade Wildwood SprouTofu Veggie Burger in the fridge (have you tried them? They are quite good). I fried it up in a little sesame oil which added to the Asian flair to this dish.

I pretty much took the easy way out for dinner tonight. But it was oh, so good.

Mango Slaw
8 oz slaw mix (mine had shredded green and red cabbage as well as carrot)
1/4 cup black sesame seeds
1 mango peeled and chopped
1/2 cup cilantro
1/3 cup white balsamic or rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp sesame oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and serve.

Wasabi Mustard
1/4 cup yellow mustard
1 tsp wasabi paste
1 tbsp agave nectar

Whisk all ingredients together and serve as a condiment instead of regular mustard.

Top your favorite veggie burger (heated over medium heat with a splash of sesame oil) with some of the mustard, some pickled ginger and black sesame seeds.  Serve a side of the mango slaw and enjoy a delicious meal!
