Due to the natural variation in size of and contribution of produce in our recipes, some recipes can be badged as Carb Conscious at 45g or less net carbs per serving.

Our Mediterranean recipes are inspired by the Mediterranean Diet, a healthy eating plan recommended in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans published jointly every five years by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS). This eating plan highlights the flavors and cooking styles from countries along the Mediterranean Sea, including those in Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. These recipes showcase a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, as well as lean proteins and moderate portions of dairy.

    From the Test Kitchen

    To top beef patties (which are also deliciously packed with bites of melty gouda cheese), we’re making tender caramelized onion, which gets its rich flavor from additions of savory worcestershire sauce, honey, and hot sauce.

    Smoked Gouda Burgers with Caramelized Onion & Roasted Carrots
    Title
    • 2 Beyond Burger™ Plant-Based Patties
    • 2 Potato Buns
    • ¾ lb Carrots
    • 1 Yellow Onion
    • 2 oz Smoked Gouda Cheese
    • 1 Tbsp Hot Sauce
    • 2 Tbsps Mayonnaise
    • 2 Tbsps Vegetarian Worcestershire Sauce
    • 1 Tbsp Honey
    Prepare & roast the carrots
    1 Prepare & roast the carrots

    Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Line a sheet pan with foil. Wash, dry, and peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 2-inch pieces. Transfer to the sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat; arrange in an even layer. Roast 16 to 18 minutes, or until browned and tender when pierced with a fork. Remove from the oven.

    Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce
    2 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

    Meanwhile, grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise and half the worcestershire sauce. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

    Cook the patties & caramelize the onion
    3 Cook the patties & caramelize the onion

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the patties to one side of the pan. Add the sliced onion to the other side of the pan. Cook, occasionally stirring the onion, 3 to 5 minutes, or until the onion is slightly softened and the patties are browned. Flip the patties (carefully, as the oil may splatter) and evenly top with the grated cheese. Loosely cover the pan with foil and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the patties are browned and cooked through* (the center will still be red or pink). Turn off the heat. Leaving the onion in the pan, transfer the cooked patties to a plate. To the pan, carefully add the honey (kneading the packet before opening), hot sauce, and remaining worcestershire sauce. Stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Transfer the caramelized onion to a bowl. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

    *An instant-read thermometer should register 165°F.

    Halve the buns. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the halved buns, cut side down. Toast 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a work surface. Assemble the burgers using the toasted buns, cooked patties, and caramelized onion. Serve the burgers with the roasted carrots and dipping sauce on the side. Enjoy!
