This burger is made spicy with Thai chile paste and rounded out with a sweet, creamy Thai-style peanut sauce. Onion sprouts, which look similar to alfalfa sprouts, have a pungent bite. You can find them next to the alfalfa sprouts in many supermarkets. Use homemade mock soy sauce to make this SCD legal.

2 Tbsps peanut butter
2 tsps low-sodium soy sauce
1 1/2 tsps dark sesame oil
