Been dying to try one of those cheese-topped, teriyaki-tastic, crazy-high-in-calories Banzai Burgers at Red Robin? Have this instead...Ingredients:
1 small hamburger bun (light, if available)
1 Boca Original Vegan Meatless Burger
1 slice fat-free cheddar cheese
1 pineapple ring, packed in juice
1 thick slice tomato
1 leaf lettuce
1 tbsp. thick teriyaki marinade with about 20 - 25 calories per tbsp. (like the one by Lawry's
1 tsp. fat-free mayonnaiseDirections:
Bring a pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat on the stove. (If you have a grill pan, use it -- you'll get neato grill marks.) Lay pineapple ring in the pan, and cook until slightly blackened and caramelized, about 3 minutes per side. Set aside to cool.
Cut a slit in the burger pouch. Place burger, slit-side up, in the microwave. Microwave for just 1 minute (not the time given on the box). If your microwave is low wattage, microwave for an additional 15 seconds. Remove patty from the microwave and place on a microwave-safe plate. Pour half of the teriyaki marinade on top, spread it around, and flip patty to coat evenly on both sides. Lay cheese slice on top of the patty, and microwave for 30 additional seconds.
Place the burger patty on the bottom half of the bun, and top with the remaining teriyaki sauce. Add the pineapple ring, tomato, and lettuce. Spread mayo on the top half of the bun, and finish your burger off with the bun's top half. Now CHOMP!
