No-Bread Burger Bun

July 21, 2014


By Coach Maria – Salus Nutritionist & Food Expert

Avoiding bread?  Eating low-carb?

Having a hamburger without the bun isn’t new or even difficult – wrapped in a lettuce leaf or just by itself is easy and when that burger is topped with some great ingredients (fried egg…guacamole…caramelized onions…sautéed bell peppers),  you won’t miss the bun (not that much, anyway!).

But why stop there?

Making these buns is a delicious way to enjoy a burger and they even taste great all by themselves!

serves 4

2-3 c combined shredded sweet potato and carrot (the shredder on a food processor makes this fast!)
3 eggs, beaten
3 Tblsp coconut flour or arrowroot flour
seasoning of choice (options that have worked: cinnamon, turmeric, smoked paprika, thyme, salt, pepper)

In a bowl, mix all ingredients.

Two choices for cooking:
1.  Bake in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes (lightly grease cookie sheet)
2. Sauté in skillet over med heat, flipping over after 5-6 minutes or until browned (melt coconut oil or organic butter to pan first), continue on other side until browned.
