food processor. Ok, the sauces aren't complicated either but it is just annoying having to make one then wash the food processor bowl then make the other and then wash it again. Whatever.
You can grill the burgers or make them in a sauté pan. I usually prefer burgers grilled but these don't stay together that well, so I make them on the stove. Once the burgers are done, slather the delicious sauces on each half of the bun, add the burger and then top a salad made up of arugula, tomato slices, red onion slices, cucumber slices and lemon juice and olive oil. These burgers are worth the effort - really, really yummy!
I made homemade tabouli to go with the burgers and fries. The most time consuming part of this recipe is mincing the parsley. Be smart and use a chopper or something. I insist on doing it by hand. I'm crazy like that. Doing it by hand takes a long, long time. I used quinoa (1 cup) instead of bulgur because I had it on hand. I chopped up two large tomatoes, 1 1/2 cucumbers, 3 or 4 green onions, a cup of fresh minced parsley, 1/2 cup of fresh minced mint. I mixed it all together and topped with 6 tablespoons each of lemon juice and oil mixed together. Last step is to season with salt and pepper then refrigerate until chilled.
