Veggie Teriyaki Burger

Sometimes living overseas I do tend to miss the occasional chain restaurant (gasp! I know I admitted that I like chain restaurants, but I'm not gonna lie they are nice to go to when you just dont have the energy to cook after a 14 hour shift).
I favor Olive garden, Wendy's (for the frosty's) and Red Robin.  Me and my husband loved the teriyaki and western bbq burgers at RR's. What was best about them was that we could sub the meat burger for a veggie one.  Well we have been craving burgers for awhile and my husband suggested I try to replicate the one from Red Robbin.  This is my twist on RR's Teriyaki burger and you can't see it but I'm slapping myself on the back for a job well done.  Or perhaps I think I did such a good job because its been about a year since I've been to an American restaurant and I forgot how they taste ; )  oh well.

Veggie Teriyaki Burger
An Oishii Treat Original

Yields 2

2 Whole Wheat Buns
2 Boca Burgers
1 can of pineapple rings
1 1/2 Cups Cabbage
1 Tablespoon Sesame Seed Oil
2 Slices Tillamook Cheddar Cheese
and your favorite teriyaki sauce (I used Marukin Teriyaki Sauce)


Bake your Boca burger according to packaged directions, 2 minutes before they're done add a slice of cheddar to the burger to melt.
Heat a sauté pan on medium high heat, add 1Tablespoon sesame seed oil. Slice your cabbage thinly and add to the pan, sauté for about 4-5 minutes until soft.  Remove the cabbage and add two pineapple rings to the pan and sauté for another 2-3 minutes.
To assemble the burger
Slice your buns in half and add some teriyaki sauce to both sides. place your burger with the melted cheddar on first, then top with a pineapple ring, add your sauteed cabbage, sprinkle with some more teriyaki sauce and top it off with the other bun and enjoy.
