Sunbutter Burger

I don’t know if you saw this on HCF website via Foodee via The Clothes Make the Girl, but I had to post this.  To be honest, I’ve never purchased these silly looking burgers with any kind of nut butter at a restaurant, but I’d love to try it at home.  Start exploring new foods!

Makes 2

1 cup strawberries, sliced
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon powdered ginger
8 ounces ground beef
salt & pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons organic (sugar-free) Sunbutter or almond butter
1-2 scallions, green tops only, thinly sliced


1. In a small bowl, mix the strawberries, lemon juice, and ginger; set aside.

2. Generously season the ground beef with salt and pepper, form into patties, and cook your favorite way. I like to grill them on the gas grill so they’re crispy on the outside, but pan fried would be really tasty, too.

3. While the burgers are cooking, heat a small saucepan over medium-high. Pour the strawberries and their juice into the pan and sauté the berries until they’re very soft and syrupy. They should be reduced to about 1/4 cup. Allow to cool a bit.

4. Put the Sunbutter in a microwave-safe dish and heat until thinned, about 40 seconds.

5. When the burgers are done, top each with 1 tablespoon of melted Sunbutter and 1-2 tablespoons of the strawberry “jelly,” then sprinkle with scallions.

    Loving it! Grilled pork loin with coconut oil, rosemary and garlic; sauteed peppers, onions and tomatoes; salad with walnuts and tomotoes too. Good stuff.

    I have a basil plant that needs harvesting. If you want some of it, let me know and I’ll bring it to the gym.
