Preparation

Chipotle Sauce

For Chipotle sauce, combine all the ingredients in food processor and puree. Rectify seasoning to taste. This sauce can be prepared ahead of time and chilled from 3 to 5 days before using.

Quick Homemade Pickles

In a small sauce pan over medium-high heat, combine rice vinegar, sugar, garlic and salt. Bring to a simmer and cook until sugar dissolves.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine cucumber, cilantro and mint. Pour hot vinegar on cucumber, stirring gently to coat evenly. Let cool at room temperature, then serve or chill until ready to use.

Chipotle Lentil & Quinoa Veggie Burger

Oil grill and preheat barbecue to medium. Cook burger patties according to directions.

To assemble burgers, spread bottom of each burger bun with chipotle sauce, then top with a patty. Garnish with tomatoes, lettuce, onion and homemade pickles. Serve immediately, with a side of Terra Chips® Blues and a green salad with sliced avocado, if desired.
