Spicy Indian veggie burger with cucumber yogurt sauce

I tried a new flavor of MorningStar Farms veggie burger: Spicy Indian Veggie made with red lentils, chickpeas and carrots. This one was good too!

I made a little yogurt sauce to go with it:

1/8 cup cucumber, seeded and minced. About a 1" piece.
1 tbsp. fresh mint, minced
1 tbsp. fresh cilantro, minced
1/8 to 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
1 small clove of garlic, minced
lemon juice
salt
freshly ground white pepper

Here are some of the ingredients:

And the final sauce.

Cook the veggie burger according to package directions. I used the stovetop method, 10 minutes at medium-low, but I flipped mine more frequently because it was starting to burn.

I use whole wheat hamburger buns and put a bed of spinach under the burger. Lettuce would work too.

Use 1 to 2 tbsp. of the yogurt sauce for one burger.

I was planning on adding thinly sliced red onion, but I forgot.


That's it! It was delicious, though the Kettle Chips hot jalapeño potato chips are probably not exactly the right thing to accompany it.
