Instructions

CABBAGE SLAW:

  1. Combine cabbage, vinegar, sesame oil, and peanut oil in a large bowl, and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Let sit at least 2 hours, stirring every 30 minutes.

TZATZIKI:

  1. Combine garlic, cucumber, mint, and yogurt in a medium sized bowl and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Let sit at least 1 hour, stirring every 30 minutes.

BURGERS:

  1. Combine carrot, and next 10 ingredients, through bread crumbs, in a large bowl. Stir well to combine. Season very generously with salt and pepper.

  2. Form into 6 equal patties, being careful to keep burger in tact.

  3. Heat half of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add 3 burgers, and cook 5-7 minutes, or until cooked side is golden brown. Flip, and cook until each side is golden brown, about 10-15 minutes total. Remove from pan and place on a paper towel. Repeat with remaining 3 burger patties.

  4. Serve burger with toasted sesame buns, topped with slaw and tzatziki.
