Hawaiian Burger with Cauliflower Buns Gluten Free & Low Carb

Growing up we would go to the rodeo and my favorite part was visiting the “Burger Wagon.” Go figure my memory hinges off a sensory food recollection! The smell of the rodeo and those greasy burgers and fries is one that I will never truly forget. There is nothing quite like sitting in the stands with a warm burger on a cool summer night. Needless to say I have a soft spot for a good burger.
As an adult I am a bit more concerned with eating well. Now I want grass-fed beef from ethical farmers. And low carb buns. Plus, big flavors to satisfy my need to experience my food in layers of complexity. Since I try to avoid simple carbohydrates like white hamburger buns I have experimented and found a “bun” that I enjoy. Cauliflower buns are not like bread. I won’t even say that, because it’s not. However, it’s a pretty tasty, although texturally different, alternative. Since I use Carrington Farms Organic Coconut Flour my buns are gluten free and paleo friendly. Plus high in protein and veggies. Always a win!
Let’s be real here. The reason I went with a tropical flavor profile for my burger is because you will always get a slight coconut flavor using coconut flour. It seems silly to me to fight against a flavor and try to hide it. For me the best recipes are ones that showcase an otherwise difficult flavor to go savory with. So I went with additions that really embrace the exotic coconut flavor. To top my cauliflower buns I used Just Mayo (seriously the best mayo), Franks Sweet Ginger Rajili Sauce, Swiss Cheese, and Organic Micro-Greens. An addition that would be great is some thinly sliced grilled pineapple!
