Delicious bunless burgers with a side of steamed broccoli all on a bed of cauliflower rice.
Anyone else crave “normal” food after a candy filled holiday like Halloween? Not only am I recovering from the sugar, but all the planning, crafting, decorations and costumes have left me feeling a little burnt out. I love this meal for those nights when you need a simple dinner.
These burger bowls are easy to tweak depending on everyone’s dietary needs. If you’re doing a round of Whole30 use coconut aminos instead of Worcestershire. If you need more carbs swap some or all of the cauliflower rice for plain white rice. With either of these changes the recipe is still delicious!

- 1 large head of cauliflower
- 2 Tbsp avocado oil
- ½ - 1 C chicken stock
- 1 head of broccoli
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 T coconut aminos or Worcestershire
- 1 egg
- 1 Tbsp avocado oil
- splash of coconut aminos or Worcestershire
- Cut cauliflower into large chunks, discarding green leaves. Pulse cauliflower in a food processor until it reaches desired "rice" consistency.
- Warm oil in a large skillet. Toss cauliflower into oil to evenly coat.
- Stir in chicken stock, enough to cover the bottom of the pan by a few millimeters.
- Season cauliflower with salt and pepper.
- Cover skillet with a lid and let cauliflower steam for about 5 minutes, or until it has reached desired softness.
- Put a vegetable steaming basket inside a large sauce pan. Add enough water to cover the bottom of the pan by 1-2 inches. Over high heat bring water to a boil.
- Cut broccoli florets from stem.
- Reduce heat to medium - low, add broccoli to steaming basket, cover pan with lid and allow to steam for 5-8 minutes, or until broccoli has reached desired doneness.
- In a large bowl combine ground beef, 1 T coconut aminos, 1 egg and season with salt and pepper.
- Form 4 beef patties, pressing the middle so it is thinner than the edges.
- In a large skillet warm 1 T avocado oil. Cook burgers for 3 to 4 minutes until slightly charred. Flip the burgers and continue cooking. Remove patties from pan. Add a splash of coconut aminos or Worcestershire to the pan and swirl to evenly coat. Allow liquid to thicken for about 30 seconds. Add patties back to pan to soak in glaze.
- Serve in bowls layering the rice, burgers and broccoli. Season with salt and pepper.
