  • 1 Lb Ground beef (I use 93% lean)
  • 2 Tbsp Olive oil, divided
  • 1 Large Onion, sliced
  • 1 Gluten Free Whole Grain Hamburger Bun
  • Pepper
  • 4 Cups Romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 2 Cups Roma tomato, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 Cup Reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, grated
  • Pickles (optional)
  • Yellow mustard

For the dressing:

  • 1 Cup Tomato paste
  • 1/4 Cup Water
  • 4 tsp White vinegar
  • 2 tsp Agave or honey
  • 1 tsp Onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic powder


  • Heat your grill to high heat.  Loosely form the beef into 4 large patties, about 3/4 inch thick and use your thumb to make an indent in the center of each one.
  • Rub each burger with 1 tsp of oil (on both sides.) Rub the remaining oil all over the sliced onion. Season with salt and pepper on both sides.
  • Place the burgers and onions on the grill and cook for 3 minutes. Flip and cook and additional 4 minutes (for medium rare) or until desired done-ness is reached. Remove from grill and cover to keep warm.
  • Place the bun, cut-side down onto the grill and cook until lightly charred, about 2-3 minutes. Once charred, cut into cubes to make the croutons.
  • Divide the lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and pickles between 4 bowls, followed by the burgers, onions and croutons.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together all the dressing ingredients until well mixed. Divide between the bowls.
  • Drizzle each bowl with some yellow mustard and DEVOUR!
