Summer is definitely a time of barbeque and getting together with friends to enjoy those unhealthy but oh-so-delicious burgers and other off-the-grill delights. But being a Celiac or having a gluten intolerance could mean you are no longer enjoying backyard barbeques like you used to and are unsure about what you can eat. Or maybe you’re getting your hands dirty making your own burgers and still not quite getting that recipe the way you want it. Fear not Celiac friends! I have found us a wonderful Bison Burger ready-made for you in a hurry to take to your friends’ houses or to cook at home on your grill. By Carmen Creek these are lightly seasoned and made without gluten!
Bison meat is free of Trans fats (which are associated with Heart Disease, High “bad” cholesterol and Obesity) and has half the saturated fat of ground beef, making it a tasty and guilt-free way to eat a burger. Plus, these burgers are free of Hormones and Antibiotics, meaning another bonus especially if you’re an expecting mommy. You can pick these up at Qi on Roncesvalles Avenue in Toronto for $19.99/box of 6 burgers frozen. This is really a good price if you think about how much you might pay to get a gluten-free burger at a restaurant and I have to say this burger is WAY BETTER than the Bison burger I had at Burger Bar in Kensington for which I paid $20.00 for ONE burger with a side salad.
To complement this tasty Bison burger try Udi’s gluten-free burger bun available at Metro and other various health food stores.
And don’t forget to always use a gluten-free bbq sauce such as Amazing Dad’s Bbq Sauce also available at Metro and gluten-free mustard such as Life Source Organic mustard in yellow or Dijon
Whatever you choose to top this juicy burger with, you won’t be disappointed!
Hope you’re all enjoying summer.
