For the Creamy Cashew Horseradish Sauce
- Add the almond milk, soaked cashews, and lemon juice to a high-speed blender and blend on high for 2 to 3 minutes, or until smooth and creamy, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed. Transfer the cream to a medium mixing bowl and whisk in the grated horseradish, mustard, vinegar, sea salt, and black pepper. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld and continue to refrigerate until ready to use.
For the Beet Slaw
- Add all ingredients to a medium, nonreactive (i.e., non-metallic) mixing bowl and toss to coat (it should be a touch sweet). Let stand for 15 minutes to soften.
For the Burgers
- Bake the burger patties according to package instructions.
- Top each bun with a Dr. Praeger’s Heirloom Bean Veggie Burger. Dollop the top of the burgers with horseradish sauce and top with the beet slaw and cucumber ribbons (if using). Serve immediately alongside any extra slaw.
