Ingredient List
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 6.4-ounce package Upton’s Naturals Classic Burger (2 patties)
  • 2 burger buns
  • 2 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons prepared pesto
  • 1 Roma tomato, sliced
  • 2 leaves lettuce
  • 2-4 slices vegan mozzarella cheese
  • Handful of fresh basil
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, then pan fry the burgers for 3-4 minutes on each side. Toast the insides of each burger bun in the skillet, then transfer to plates.

In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise and pesto to make a pesto mayo.

To assemble burgers, evenly spread the pesto mayo on the toasted sides of each bun. Place a leaf of lettuce and 1-2 tomato slices on the bottom bun, then put the burger on top. Place an even amount of vegan mozzarella atop the burger, then garnish each with fresh basil leaves. Drizzle olive oil on top of each burger, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place the top buns on each.
