SubLIME Cashew Mozza Burger

Pairs well with:

Pinot Grigio

You won’t need a bouquet of flowers when you share our Pinot Grigio. This crisp wine with floral aromas is a wonderful way to make an entrance.


1/2 cup unseasoned bread crumbs
4 fat cloves of garlic pressed
2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
2 tablespoons finely chopped italian parsley
2 stalks scallions finely minced
1 medium yellow onion finely minced
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 lime zested
1 tablespoon maple syrup
2 teaspoons finely grated ginger
1/4 teaspoon of sea salt
1/4 teaspoon of jalapeno pepper or crushed red pepper flakes
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1 cup raw cashews
Extra Virgin Olive Oil to grease the grill rack
6 Croissants, cut crosswise
6 Lettuce Leaves (Butter Lettuce)
6 Slices of 1 Large Tomato
1/2 cup of Mayonnaise
1 ripe Haas Avocado



Instructions: Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover, or preheat a gas grill to medium-high. To make the patties, put bread crumbs in a large bowl. Add the garlic, thyme, parsley and scallion. Mix thoroughly so that the bread crumbs absorb the moisture from the herbs. Add onion, Braggs or soy sauce, lime zest, plus the juice of 1/2 of that lime, maple syrup, ginger, salt and pepper. Mix as you go to help the bread crumbs absorb the moisture. Fold in the mozzarella. In a food processor, chop the cashews to a fine powder and add to the other ingredients, folding it in. Using your hand, score the dough into 6 parts. Grease the grill with some olive oil. Place the patties on the rack and gently brush top side with olive oil. Cover and grill until patties start to brown or forms a crust at the bottom (approx. 3 mins). Flip the patties, brush with olive oil and cook for 5 mins. To assemble the burgers, cut the croissants crosswise, toast them lightly and spread 1 tablespoon (or more) of mayonnaise on each side. Place lettuce, tomato (drizzle both with Olive Oil and Braggs or Soy Sauce), pattie and avocado on the bottom half of the croissant. Cover with the top half of the croissant. Enjoy!
