Ingredients

  • 4 slices Spicy Grilled Pineapple (recipe follows)

  • tomato slices

Balsamic Red Onion Confit

Spicy Grilled Pineapple

Preparation

Balsamic Red Onion Confit

Mince the onions. Heat oil in a large skillet or pot over low heat. Add in onion, salt and pepper. Cook 20 to 30 minutes, stirring from time to time, until onions are very soft, almost jam-like. Add in balsamic vinegar, increase heat to help evaporate and cook 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool, if desired. This confit can be prepared ahead of time and chilled up to 5 days.

Spicy Grilled Pineapple

Oil the grill and preheat the barbecue on High.

If using a whole pineapple, peel, cut into medium slices and remove core. Baste slices with olive oil and season with salt and paprika or curry powder. Grill on barbecue, lid closed, 5 to 8 minutes until nicely charred (check a few times to avoid burning). Reserve.

Hawaiian-Style Veggie Burger

Lower barbecue to medium and cook burger patties according to directions.

To assemble burgers, spread a little confit over both top and bottom of panini breads. Add patty, grilled pineapple slice and a few whole basil leaves. Close burger buns and serve immediately, with a side of Terra Chips® Sweet Potato and homemade coleslaw, if desired.
