Did you dream about a burger?

Whenever we are grilling burgers I always skip the bread as I am not really doing so good with it and t that’s ok but to be perfectly honest I do miss to be able to hold it and the texture of the bread. So I have finally been introduced to unmodified Potato Starch that apparently have been proven to improved insulin sensitivity, lower blood sugar levels, reduced appetite and various benefits for digestion just to mention a few. So I decided to try a recipe making burger buns and it was healthy and heavenly!

burger

2  Eggs
1 pinch of salt
1/2 tablespoon unflavored coconut oil
1/2 dl water
1/2 dl coconut flour
0,5 dl unmodified potato starch
2 tablespoons psyllium husk
1 teaspoon baking powered
sesame seeds

 

How to:

Whisk the eggs until it’s fluffy. Add the coconut oil and the water and keep on wishing. Mix the rest of the ingredients and add to the eggs and keep on mixing. Let the “dough” rest for a few minutes before you wet your hands in water (so the dough don’t get stuck to your hands) and make small buns. Before placing in the over for 10 minutes at 300-350 F sprinkle sesame seed over them.

 

Patties

1 pound minced beef or your preferred protein

1 egg

garlic

oregano

Paprika powder

chili sauce

salt and pepper

chopped olives

 

Mix it all together and make patties, before placing them on the grill add your “grilling seasoning” and top off with your favorite toppings.

Turkey burgers with coleslaw – Another winner, the kids loved them!

If you haven’t noticed I love cabbage in all its forms and colors. Cabbage has a lot of vitamins and minerals and is loaded with antioxidants that are good for you i.e. liver, immune system and your metabolism.

Turkey Burger

700 gram/1.5 lbs. Grounded Turkey

1 Chopped Garlic Clove

1 Egg

Fresh Chopped Rosemary

Fresh Chopped Tarragon

Fresh Chopped Thyme

1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard

1 tablespoon Paprika Powder

Salt and Pepper

Coleslaw

½ Red Cabbage

White Wine Vinegar

Salt and Pepper

Mayonnaise

1 Yolk

1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard

1 tablespoon White Wine Vinegar

1 dl /less than ½ a cup of Vegetable Oil

Salt and Pepper

Chili Flakes

How to: Mix the ingredients for the burgers and them into make patties. Grate or cut (I used a cheese slicer) cabbage and sprinkle the Vinegar and Salt and Pepper over the cabbage. In a different bowl mix together the Yolk, Mustard, Vinegar, Salt, Pepper and Chili. I always use an electrical beater when I make mayonnaise, add the oil very carefully in a fine stream while you whisk. Mix the mayonnaise with the cabbage and store it in the fridge until ready to serve .When you have everything ready fry the patties but make sure they are thoroughly cooked as bird meat can carry salmonella.

I was going to make buns using almond flour but in to be perfectly honest I ran out of time so I ended up roasting veggies instead.
