Surprisingly, one of the most difficult foods to walk away from in order to eat a real food diet is sandwiches. There’s something about sandwiches, of all shapes, sizes, and flavors, that we love in our culture. Fortunately, there are fantastic grain free and healthy recipes for items like sandwich rounds that can be paired with pulled pork or sloppy joes. Another beloved member of the sandwich family is the burger. Boy, do we go crazy over a good burger! The good news is that you can still eat real food and enjoy a delicious burger. When made with good grass-fed beef seasoned with organic spices, a burger can bring lots of needed protein to the table. Top that burger with avocado, spinach, tomato, onion, and fermented sauerkraut and you really have a party.
More good news – you don’t have to sacrifice the burger bun, either. These quick and easy gluten free burger buns are made with gluten free, sprouted flour, arrowroot starch, egg, baking soda, salt, and coconut oil. See? Easy! Just a quick toss in the pan to cook and you have a perfectly tasty and healthful foundation upon which to build your burger castle. Happy assembling!
“Through many attempts and trial and error, I have perfected my favorite gluten free hamburger bun! It works best with medium or small sized burgers. The only problem with these is that they don’t soak up the condiments such as mayo, ketchup, or mustard, so we always cut ours in half for better handling, but we don’t care, it tastes great and at least we can still enjoy that occasional burger while staying gluten free. You can also use this recipe for open faced sandwiches such as sloppy-joes, BBQ slow roast, or for making an English muffin or sandwich bread!
The recipe calls for buckwheat flour, I have gone through great lengths to soak, sprout and dry my own before I grind it in a coffee grinder, that is to remove as many anti-nutrients as possible and for better digestion. You do not have to do the same thing to get the same taste results, although it’s highly recommended for health. You could also use any other gluten free flour in it’s place.
