Cauliflower Burger Buns
Yup, I found the solution when you want to devour a juicy hamburger but want to cut back on the carbs. Cauliflower buns! I mean it definitely does not replace that taste and feeling of eating a buttery brioche bun, but it is a yummy (and healthy) alternative. For those who like cauliflower, you will love these! For those who are not a big fan, trust me you will still like these cauliflower buns! The best part, now you can indulge in those extra (maybe unhealthy) toppings.
This recipe makes 4 buns.
400g cauliflower florets
1 teaspoon Italian herbs
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoons onion powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
Pinch of chili powder
Preheat the oven to 220C/425F.
In a food processor blend the cauliflower floret until they have a rice-like texture.
Transfer the rice to a bowl and microwave for about 10 minutes, stirring half way. Allow the cauliflower rice to cool down for 3 minutes. Now add the remaining ingredients and stir until well combined.
Line an oven tray with parchment paper. With your hands form 4 balls from the “cauliflower batter” and place them on the oven tray. Press down with your hands to create a bun-like form.
Put the tray in the oven and bake your cauliflower buns for 25 minutes. When they are finished the buns should be firm and have a golden color.
Serve them with your favorite hamburger and toppings! Enjoy!
