1/4 cup chopped green onions
2 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1/2-1 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
1 tablespoon peeled, finely chopped ginger
1/2-1 teaspoons curry powder
1/2-1 teaspoons ground cumin
4 large sesame hamburger buns, toasted
small amount of oil for frying
1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise
2 tablespoons sweet chili sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2-1 teaspoons sesame oil
toppings: shredded napa cabbage, bean sprouts, fresh cilantro, sliced tomatoes

What you do: 

In large bowl mix vegan sausage, green onions, chopped cilantro, soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, ginger, curry powder, cumin and mix well. Shape into 4 patties.
In a separate bowl whisk vegan mayonnaise, sweet chili sauce, soy sauce and oil; refrigerate.
Heat oil in frying pan on medium-high heat, fry burgers 8-10 minutes on each side until well done (the longer you fry them the firmer the texture) adjust the cooking time to meet your family's needs. Drain patties on paper towel.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Oh, yummy, yummy, yummy. <3
I made these tonight (obviously). Accidentally burned a few on one side but they were still amazing.  I just topped mine with baby spinach, alfalfa sprouts, a little bit more chili sauce, and a decent amount of ketchup. I had them with steamed green beans.
I am definitely making these again.

I usually never make veggie burgers that aren't bean burgers because more often than not I hate the taste of fake meat as much as I hated the taste of real meat, but since yves asian ground round was on special at the supermarket, I decided to try these out.
Now, my mistake of not realizing that the ground round is a crumble was easily solved by adding a 2 tbsp flour, which made it hold together splendiferously! I added chopped mushrooms, 1 clove of garlic, and grated the ginger.
End result: Top Notch, Milladio!  ;)b
These burgers make me as happy as a chap who'd thought a cat has done its business on his pie but it turned out to be an extra large blackberry!  ;D

These were pretty good! I used to love Gimme Lean "sausage," but then converted to Tofurky (and Gimme Lean started to taste a little too artificial). The seasonings in this are perfect, and since it's Gimme Lean the patties held together perfectly. I'm glad to find a new way to use sweet chili sauce, but the mayo/soy sauce/sweet chili sauce spread is ok. It's not disappointing or anything, but I think the burgers can definitely stand on their own, and I wouldn't go out of my way to make the spread.
Cool idea.

this was pretty good.  I used Gimme Lean Sausage, which on its own I think is alright, and this did definitely spice it up some and make it better. but, overall, i am not a big fan of Gimme Lean Sausage, so it was a bit much for me to be eating a whole burger made from it! i cooked them til they were black,which gave them a good texture, and my husband really liked the burger.

This was super yummy! My husband (who eats meat) even enjoyed the burgers!

These were very tasty, and a creative way to use Gimme Lean sausage.  I didn't have any buns, so I had my burger cut up on top of a salad, and thinned the chili mayo with a little soymilk for dressing.  Nice and spicy, and very very good!  :devilwink:

This bad boy has been in my recipe box for a long time and I finally made this tonight and it RULES!  I put more sweet chili sauce on the burger.  Served it with carrot fries dipped in more sweet chili sauce.  Wow, that was good. ;)b

Note: We cook ours until they are just evenly blackened, and they do not have a charred flavor.
