Loaded Bunless Burger For A Healthier Cookout Option.
A delicious and nutritious way to still participate in a cook-out, but without the gluten, dairy and artificial ingredients. Trust me when I say you won’t even miss the bun as you dive into this delicious burger. Loaded with fresh veggies and power greens, it satiates the tastebuds and satisfies the belly.
I’ve created this recipe to be FODMAP friendly for those of us who have issues with garlic and onions—common with burgers—but there is absolutely no sacrifice on taste. Bubbies Fermented Sauerkraut* (no garlic) replaces the pickles and provides gut-healthy, gut-healing benefits and Fody’s low FODMAP ketchup replaces regular ol’ ketchup.
