A Truly Paleo Burger

Other than bacon, beef and cauliflower seem to be the two most favored ingredients on the Paleo diet- Beef because it's a succulent meat, and cauliflower because it works great as a swap for many Paleo-no-no's such as rice, potatoes, and other grains/carby veggies (think cauli rice, mashed faux-tatoes, etc.) Anyway, this burger recipe has BOTH of those, making it a true Paleo Burger in my opinion. And hey, for all of you passionate Paleo people out there, if you're feelin' frisky, I won't be offended if you add some Bacon to your burger to really incorporate all the Paleo fav's.

To make this big juicy burger, you will need:

4oz lean ground beef (my new 96% fat-free ground beef from Trader Joe's never disappoints)
1/4 cup cauliflower (microwaved and pureed in a food processor)
2T  BBQ Sauce, mustard, salsa, Hot Sauce, tomato sauce/ketchup, or any other sauce of your choice (I am partial to BBQ sauce, but that's just personal preference)
Spice is up to your liking! (A pinch of any/all of the following: garlic and onion powder, paprika, cayenne/chili powder/red pepper flakes, cumin, dehydrated garlic and onion flakes, fresh cracked pepper

Simply combine all of the above ingredients in a bowl, form into patties, throw 'em on the grill, and eat up! I served mine over lettuce, tomato, and 1/2 a Fiber One English Muffin (okay, so not so Paleo, but I've eaten it over leftover Cauli-mash in the past and it is just as good!) Pin It
