What is American cuisine? No, seriously, I’m really confused. I know these aren’t the questions I should be asking two days after America’s birthday extravaganza, but hey, I’ve always been a curious person!
I know we have burgers and hot dogs and apple pie, but is that really all we have to offer? America may be an amazing place to live, but I think what we offer in the food department as our own cuisine is seriously lacking.
Think of some American staples. Pizza. Burrito bowls. Sushi. These all have some sort of global influence.
Maybe that’s what makes us so special.
We truly are a country of diversity, of many different cultures and traditions coming together and forming something unique. I wish we in general could be more open-minded and accepting of others, because we all have something beautiful (and delicious!) to offer.
Our food is the same way. It’s bits and pieces of different cultures and flavors to create something unique. We’re lucky because we get to try a taste of almost every global cuisine right here at home—Indian, Chinese, Ethiopian, Italian, Greek, Japanese, Mexican, and so much more.
If we truly appreciated people the same way we appreciate these diverse cuisines, I think the world would be a better place. So let’s sit around the table and enjoy tasty food together!
That’s what these Asian veggie burgers are. A classic American meal with a little (vegan) Asian twist and a BIG flavor punch.
We’ve got a fluffy hamburger bun (I was ambitious and made my own), tender & hearty Teriyaki Veggie Burger from Sweet Earth Natural Foods, crisp spinach, crunchy mango cabbage slaw, spicy Sriracha sauce🔥, and fresh sprouts.
Basically every texture/flavor you could ever want in a big bite of burger. We ain’t never going back to sad boring veggie burgers, fam.
Okay, so I’ve got exciting news to share with you. Drumroll please… I will be a Sweet Earth partner for the next year!🎉 To say I’m excited is an understatement.

If you’ve never heard of Sweet Earth, here’s the low-down.

So, yeah. About these burgers. WITNESS THE BEAUTY. I’m pretty sure when Katy Perry named her new album, she meant for it to be short for Witness…The Veggie Burger. Okay, is that a bit of a stretch? Cool.
You never have to be sad about a tasteless veggie burger again because these are anything but tasteless. The teriyaki burger patty is full of ingredients like sweet potato, edamame, and Sweet Earth‘s homemade teriyaki sauce. YUM. Plus, they cook up in 5 minutes flat, so that’s only 5 minutes (!!!) from freezer to mouth to happy, happy belly.
Pile on the toppings (that slaw! the tahini Sriracha sauce!) and get ready for a tastebud celebration. You can even go crazy with the double stacked option for these Asian Veggie Burgers. Which makes you a 💯 Plant Warrior. (<–yes I just made that up)
