Cauliflower burgers have gained popularity in recent years as a low-carb and vegetarian option for burger lovers. The idea of using cauliflower as a base for burgers has been around for a while, but it has recently gained traction as a healthier alternative to traditional beef burgers.


How to prepare

  1. Preheat the grill or broiler on high heat.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the beef, cauliflower, and thyme.
  3. Form the beef mixture into 2 small patties.
  4. Cook the patties until they reach the desired doneness.
  5. Place the cheese on top of the meat patties just before they are done.
  6. Cook for an additional 30 seconds to allow the cheese to melt.


  • Try adding different seasonings to the beef mixture, such as garlic powder, onion powder, or smoked paprika. You can also mix in other vegetables, such as bell peppers or mushrooms, for added flavor and nutrients.

Cooking Tips & Tricks

When making cauliflower burgers, be sure to finely chop the cauliflower to ensure it mixes well with the other ingredients. Additionally, cooking the patties on high heat will help them develop a nice crust while keeping the inside moist and flavorful.

Serving Suggestions

Serve cauliflower burgers on a whole wheat bun with your favorite toppings, such as lettuce, tomato, and avocado. Pair with a side salad or sweet potato fries for a complete meal.

Cooking Techniques

Grilling or broiling the cauliflower burgers will give them a nice charred flavor and crispy texture. You can also pan-fry them in a skillet for a quicker cooking time.

Ingredient Substitutions

Feel free to use ground turkey or chicken in place of the steak for a leaner option. You can also use different types of cheese, such as cheddar or pepper jack, for a different flavor profile.

Make Ahead Tips

You can prepare the beef mixture ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator until ready to cook. This will save you time when you're ready to make the burgers.

Presentation Ideas

Serve cauliflower burgers on a platter with a variety of toppings and condiments for guests to customize their burgers. You can also serve them slider-style for a fun and interactive meal.

Cauliflower burgers pair well with a crisp green salad, roasted vegetables, or a side of coleslaw. For drinks, try a light beer or a glass of white wine.
