Directions

  1. Add soaked cashews, garlic, tomato paste, water, rice vinegar, chili sauce, paprika, and salt to a food processor. Puree until completely smooth. Fold in pimentos and reserve in refrigerator.

  2. Heat oil to 350°F. While oil is heating, whisk together the milk, cornstarch, salt and pepper, in a small bowl. Transfer the cornmeal to a shallow dish. Dredge the tomato slices in the cornstarch mixture and let any excess drip off slightly. Dredge the tomatoes in the cornmeal and coat entirely. Repeat with each tomato. Shallow fry green tomatoes until golden brown and crispy, about 2 minutes per side.

  3. Heat a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Lightly spray insides of hamburger buns with cooking spray. Toast buns in skillet, face-down until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.

  4. Cook Gardein Ultimate Burgers as directed on package, using skillet method. Remove from skillet; keep warm.

  5. Spread the Cajun mayonnaise on the bottom bun, place the lettuce on top of the mayonnaise, top with the burger, then the fried green tomato. Top with a spoonful of the pimento “cheese” and then the top bun.
