With the late summer heat, I’ve been trying to use the outdoor grill as much as possible. When I’m not grilling portobello mushrooms or veggie kabobs, I’m making plant-based burgers. These Hawaiian-inspired vegan teriyaki burgers with grilled pineapple are quick and easy to make, and incredibly juicy and satisfying.
Though I do make my own homemade veggie burgers my family prefers “meaty” patties that taste like traditional hamburgers. SWEET EARTH® has been one of my favorite plant-based brands for years, so I was excited to try their Sweet Earth Awesome Burger and it did not disappoint. They blend the juicy, meaty deliciousness of a traditional burger with plant-based nutrition and goodness!

You can use your favorite buns, and fill with smashed avocado, grilled patties, lettuce, red onion, and grilled pineapple. You can use fresh or canned pineapple rings, and don’t miss the post all about how to cut a fresh pineapple. Another tasty option is to top your veggie burgers with a fresh pineapple or mango salsa.
How to Cook Plant-Based Burgers
You can cook these burgers on an outdoor grill, grill pan, or skillet. If your plant-based meat was frozen, be sure to thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Simply cook on the hot grill for 4 minutes, then flip over and brush with teriyaki sauce. You can use store-bought sauce or homemade. Cook for another 4 minutes, and they are done.
What to Serve with Your Burgers
- 1 pineapple, cut into rings (or 1 can pineapple rings, drained)
- 4 Sweet Earth® Awesome Burger, thawed if frozen
- 1/4 cup homemade or store-bought teriyaki sauce
- 4 hamburger buns
- 1 large avocado
- 1 red onion, sliced into rings
- 1 large tomato, sliced (optional)
- Favorite lettuce
- Preheat a barbecue or frying pan to medium-high. Grill pineapple rings until caramelized grill marks appear, about 2 minutes per side. Set aside. You also grill your onions, though I prefer them raw.
- Brush the patties with a little olive or coconut oil to prevent sticking. Cook for about 4 minutes, then flip. Brush with teriyaki sauce and continue to cook for another 4-5 minutes, until internal temperature reaches 165°F.
- Meanwhile toast the buns. Smash the avocado onto the bottom buns. Top with the veggie burger patties, pineapple, onion, tomato, and lettuce.
Swap the grilled pineapple for fresh pineapple salsa for another tasty option.
