Bun-less Burgers are the BEST


tomato and cilantro

A burger without a bun can often seem depressing. It can seem less than. It can seem like you’re missing out, going without. But most things are not how they seem. This weekend I had a burger that was so delicious, a bun would have just brought it down.

Roasted Tomato Burger with Fresh Cilantro

Parrish bought some locally raised all-natural ground beef from Cane Creek Farm at the Carrboro Farmer’s Market on Saturday, and I roasted the tomatoes. Paired with fresh cilantro from our garden and a few sprinkles of parmesan cheese. Perfection!

Served with a fork, you’ll never miss the bun…or the calories!
