    From the Test Kitchen

    Layers of charred onion and a creamy fig spread give these savory Spanish-style burgers deliciously sweet contrast. For an equally bold pairing, you’ll make a sophisticated garnish for charred shishito peppers simply by rubbing salt together with vibrant lime zest to release its fragrant oils.

    Spanish-Spiced Burgers with Charred Shishito Peppers & Lime Salt
    Title
    • 2 Beyond Burger® Plant-Based Patties
    • 2 Potato Buns
    • 1 Red Onion
    • 1 Tbsp Fig Spread
    • 1 Tbsp Spanish Spice Blend (Smoked Paprika, Ground Cumin, Ground Coriander, Dried Mexican Oregano, Cayenne Pepper & Ground Cinnamon)
    • 6 oz Shishito Peppers
    • 1 Lime
    • 2 Tbsps Mayonnaise
    • 1 clove Garlic
    • ¼ tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
    Prepare the ingredients & make the creamy fig spread
    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the creamy fig spread

    Wash and dry the fresh produce. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate the lime to get 2 teaspoons. Quarter the lime. Peel the onion; cut crosswise into 1/2-inch rounds, keeping the layers intact. Halve the buns. Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, fig spread, and as much of the garlic paste as you’d like; season with salt and pepper.

    Char the peppers
    2 Char the peppers

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the peppers in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned; season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until charred and softened. Transfer to a bowl and top with the juice of 2 lime wedges. Cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

    Cook the patties & onion
    3 Cook the patties & onion

    Meanwhile, evenly sprinkle the patties with half the spice blend (you will have extra) and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned patties and onion rounds in an even layer. Loosely cover the pan with foil. Cook 3 to 5 minutes per side (flipping carefully, as the oil may splatter), or until the onion rounds are lightly charred and the patties are browned and cooked through.** Transfer to a work surface. Wipe out the pan. 

    *An instant-read thermometer should register 165°F for Beyond Burger®.

    Add the halved buns, cut side down, to the same pan (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil). Toast on medium-high 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until lightly browned. Transfer to a work surface. Assemble the burgers using the toasted buns, creamy fig spread, cooked patties, and as much of the cooked onion as you’d like. Serve the burgers with the charred peppers. Top the peppers with the lime salt. Serve the remaining lime wedges on the side. Enjoy!
