Cookbook Review ~ Gluten-Free in Five Minutes

I get contacted occasionally to test out new cookbooks. I enjoy this little perk of blogging, because it gives me a chance to see what is out there, and lets me give YOU my honest opinion of a book. You never know. Sometimes I am pleasantly surprised when I get a new cookbook. Enters Roben Ryberg‘s new cookbook “Gluten-Free in Five Minutes“.

Review of "Gluten Free in Five Minutes" by Robin Ryberg

I will admit to you, I was very hesitant to try this book. I flinched a little when I read the words “Make ‘Em in Your Microwave”. Not much good has ever been baked in the microwave, much less good AND gluten-free. But, I tried it. And?

Gluten-free in 5 Minutes Review - Red Velvet Cake

I enjoyed some Gluten-Free Red Velvet cake…mixed & baked in about 5 minutes. Seriously. (I was out of red food colouring though, hence the lack of red). This cake was really very delicious, the texture was really good, and it was a nice late night dessert on the deck for my husband & I to share.


Gluten-free in 5 Minutes Review - Cornbread

I had some cornbread, also ready to eat in about 5 minutes. And you know what? I’d make it again! If I were having something like chili for supper, and everyone else had their own bread to eat it with, I’d make myself a little cornbread. Really good warm, not quite as great cool, but hey, what do you expect with 5 minute & a microwave? I was quite happy that it was so good warm.

Oh yeah, there’s more…

Gluten-free in 5 Minutes Review - Blueberry Muffins

You see the above? They are gluten-free blueberry muffins, made in the microwave  one morning. Yes, they look a little off, but you know what? They tasted good! I actually preferred them once they had cooled, as opposed to warm.

Ok, I thought, I’ve had cake, cornbread, and muffins. And I have been surprised by all of them. I know what my readers really want to know…can you REALLY make a single gluten-free hamburger bun in 5 minutes? One that tastes good? My answer for you?

Gluten-free in 5 Minutes Review - Hamburger Bun

Absolutely! I really do not know how Roben does it. She’s amazing, and has totally gained my respect. This hamburger bun was really, really good. Moist, but not wet & spongy. Not crumbly, but not rubbery. I did not eat mine with a burger, instead I topped it with some honey and ate it that way. I shared it with my husband, even he was amazed (he’s not on a GF diet, btw). And you know what? I think we’ll be having burgers tonight for supper, and I will be having mine on a bun!

There are 4 hamburger bun recipes in the book, each is a little different. She tells you the differences in each recipe’s description. This one is more spongy, or this one is more moist. This one tastes like whole grain, etc. Helpful information! Plus, most recipes use only one flour. And you can pick which recipe will work best for you, based on what you have on hand.

Here are some tips from Roben Ryberg herself:

Two tips for baking with Gluten-Free in Five Minutes: 1. Beat egg until nearly uniform in color (or beat your batter well if you forget to beat the egg well) and 2. Remember that each microwave is different. If yours is very powerful, you will need to cook your food item less. If your microwave is not so powerful, you will need to cook your food item more. A 15 second adjustment in time is usually all it takes!

Gluten-Free in Five Minutes - Hamburger Rolls
Serves: 1
It is possible to make just one hamburger bun when you're in a bind. Source: Roben Ryberg - Gluten Free in Five Minutes
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon applesauce
  • 1/16 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  1. Bake in: 2-cup ramekin or other straight-sided microwave-safe bowl.
  2. In a small bowl or cup, briefly beat egg until almost uniform in color.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and mix well to combine.
  4. Spray 2-cup ramekin with nonstick cooking spray.
  5. Pour batter into ramekin and tap base to level batter.
  6. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Roll will rise and then settle.
  7. Gently remove from dish and cool.


One thing to keep in mind…the microwave will not brown your food for you the way a skillet (in the case of pancakes, which are now on my ‘must try’ list) or oven will. If you want the tops of the buns or muffins to be slightly browned (which will just make for better visual appeal), feel free to pop the item in a toaster oven or oven for a few minutes.

Do I recommend it? Yes. Absolutely. Right now on Amazon her book is selling for less than $12, which I think is a real steal. If you’re looking for a recipe book with quick, easy recipes, give it a try. I can not vouch for all of the recipes, but I tried 4 of them, and they were all really quite good.

The book includes other recipes like English Muffin, Sandwich Bread, Pizza Crust, Stuffed Mushrooms, Lemon Poppy Seed Pound Cake, Extreme Chocolate Cake, Pineapple Upside Down Cake, a section on Icings, Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars, Banana Bread, and Raspberry Cobbler. 123 recipes in total. Wow.

    WOW – this sounds like an excellent cookbook. Thanks for hosting the contest! If I win, I would like to make a BBQ burger (hamburger with BBQ sauce and caramelized onions).

  2. Jordan August 17, 2011 at 12:12 am #

    I don’t actually own a microwave, but I would get one if it meant 5 minutes to gluten free baked goods. I’d use my bun to make a BLAST – Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado, Sprouts and (heirloom) Tomato.

  3. Areta August 17, 2011 at 3:44 am #

    This book sounds awesome. What a great idea to have a bun in 5 minutes. If I won this book, I would use the bun for a pulled pork sand which. Yum!

  4. valerie deleon August 17, 2011 at 5:15 am #

    The cookbook looks fantastic. I usually do not use a bun, but would love an easy recipe. I am the only one gluten free, so it cost to much to buy bread that I only use. This way I could make a bun for me as well.

  5. Trish August 17, 2011 at 6:21 am #

    Wow! The book looks great.
    I’d make a Moroccan lamb burger with some sweet potato chips on the side :)

  6. Heather Brandt August 17, 2011 at 6:38 am #

    I’d love a hamburger or sloppy joe!

  7. Heather August 17, 2011 at 6:44 am #

    Wow this book would be awesome for my sister. She is a single mom with celiac disease and she doesnt like to take the time to cook and bake stuff for herself. She could use this time saving recipes to make stuff for herself while making meals for herself and her daughter. I love trying new recipes and making gluten free treats for her. We are always having family bbqs together and this bun recipe would be perfect when we try a new recipe I found for bbqed turkey burgers with lettuce, tomatoes and sweet potato chipolte cream sauce! Yummy, Thanks for posting this recipe!

  8. Amanda KP August 17, 2011 at 6:52 am #

    It sounds like this book would be perfect for me since I live alone. I would love to make a black bean/sweet potato burger recipe i just saw, topped with fresh lettuce and rhubarb ketchup!

  9. Susan H August 17, 2011 at 6:57 am #

    I love the idea of 5 minute recipes. I would make a chicken salad sandwich on my hamburger bun

  10. Erin H. August 17, 2011 at 7:08 am #

    Wow, this book sounds awesome. I’d try the the hamburger bun. How awesome to throw that in the microwave before we leave for a restaurant and I have a bun to take along last minute!

  11. Amy Z. August 17, 2011 at 7:14 am #

    One thing I miss about being GF is the convenience of having quick foods available–including hamburger buns. This sounds nearly perfect. Gluten free AND fast! Thanks for sharing!

  12. Sandy F. August 17, 2011 at 7:19 am #

    I think I’d put sloppy joes on that bun. Yummy!

  13. Derek R August 17, 2011 at 7:27 am #

    I would make a straightforward BLT because right now is the peak of tomato season and I have all these delicious heirloom tomatoes. I’d probably use the golden jubilee tomato or the black brandywine. The recipe looks awesome!

  14. Yael August 17, 2011 at 7:29 am #

    I would have a hamburger or sloppy joe on MOVE DAY with all our friends that helped and I could have it fresh and I would not have to bake on MOVE DAY!

  15. Diane August 17, 2011 at 7:43 am #

    I would make a BBQ chicken sandwich with leafy lettuce and red onions!! YUM!!!

  16. Tara August 17, 2011 at 7:55 am #

    Oh, I’d totally have a mushroom and swiss burger! Loaded with gooey goodness! 😉

  17. Lisa August 17, 2011 at 7:59 am #

    Im not so sure of the cornmeal in the burger bun. Cornmeal in my sandwich bread is not my “thing”. That said, I think I’d try it with a turkey burger! The first two photographs of yours almost got me convinced that I need to buy this book though. I would totally make chocolate cake and corn bread. Awesome review!
    Extraordinary Life

  18. Summer August 17, 2011 at 8:02 am #

    I would make a tomato sandwich with butter lettuce, fresh basil and red pepper havarti cheese.

  19. Juleigh Miller August 17, 2011 at 8:12 am #

    Ooo how about bbq’d brisket!

  20. Juleigh Miller August 17, 2011 at 8:13 am #

    Bbq’d brisket!

  21. Ronda August 17, 2011 at 8:35 am #

    I would add a T.spoon of sharp cheddar to the hamburger bun, and make a bacon cheese burger topped with grilled onions and lots of ketchup for my 15 year old son.

  22. Nance August 17, 2011 at 8:42 am #

    I would make a bay shrimp, avocado and alfalfa sprout sandwich. Nom, nom!

  23. Kerrie August 17, 2011 at 8:45 am #

    I’m newly gluten-free, and this sounds like the kind of book I want in my kitchen! I want a bacon cheeseburger!!

  24. Colleen August 17, 2011 at 8:59 am #

    Looks pretty amazing! What a time saver! My boy is a big fan of chicken sandwiches-so it would be gf breaded chicken (then he would load it with ketchup and tabasco!)

  25. Rebecca Brown August 17, 2011 at 9:20 am #

    I will absolutely try the microwave hamburger bun and serve it with my burger along with barbecue sauce, swiss cheese, and bacon. Thank you for sharing, it looks like an interesting cookbook. :)

  26. hilary August 17, 2011 at 9:29 am #

    I would make a super yummy veggie sandwich layered with cream cheese, cucumber slices, a whole lotta sprouts, tomato, sharp white cheddar, and a couple slices of bacon (I know….not veggie now!)…so yummy though!

  27. Janice M August 17, 2011 at 9:32 am #

    I would love to make a portabello burger on this bun with caramelized onion and Swiss cheese and some honey garlic BBQ sauce.

    The recipes you’ve shown looks awesome. I can’t believe that there isn’t any flour in the Hamburger Bun recipe. How simple is that!

  28. Krista August 17, 2011 at 9:34 am #

    I would love to have a REAL hamburger for the first time in two years! I usually don’t mind just eating the burger, but sometimes it would be nice to have a burger with all the fixings:).

  29. Natalie August 17, 2011 at 9:44 am #

    I am seriously tempted. Like you said, this is a great idea for those that have just one GF person in the house (in our case it is my daughter).

    I think we would make BBQ beef or chicken. My daughter would love that!

  30. Lissa August 17, 2011 at 9:53 am #

    I’d use a single recipe to make two smaller buns. Then I’d make little hamburgers for my 3-year-old celiac twins. They prefer just meat and ketchup–lots of ketchup.

  31. Francine August 17, 2011 at 9:55 am #

    I own a microwave I have wondered if GF baking could be done in the microwave. This book would help solve my problem I am a full-time student and don’t have the time to bake. I would use it to for all my baking. I live in Texas and it has been over 100 degrees for 2 months and counting. I really miss home baked items. I have been making and eating things that don’t require using my stove because it makes my house hotter.

  32. Melanie Scott August 17, 2011 at 10:11 am #

    I am a single mom with celiac , I find it hard to cook for just myself, I hardly bake anything cause most of it ( with exception ) my daughter won’t even try. This cook book would be soooo awesome for me. We love baconators from wendys … we love to make our own version at home , so bacon , all beef patties, mayo, ketchup and cheese …yummmmm I am hungry now !!!

  33. Roben Ryberg August 17, 2011 at 10:20 am #

    Am glad you are enjoying the book! The extreme chocolate cake recipe is on my website ( should anyone want to try another recipe. :)

    • Jeanine August 17, 2011 at 10:22 am #

      Thanks for stopping by Roben! I really enjoyed your new book. Like I said, I was skeptical, but now I’m a believer. And now I need to go find the Extreme Chocolate Cake recipes. 😉 Thanks again!

  34. Tiffany S. August 17, 2011 at 10:23 am #

    Grilled chicken, mozz, tomato, basil, fresh crushed garlic, a little EVOO and balsamic. Chicken Bruschetta mini sam.

  35. Evelyn August 17, 2011 at 10:37 am #

    I would probably make your typical all-American cheeseburger…it’s one of the thing I miss the most! Grilled hamburger patty with melted cheese, pickles, tomatoes, maybe some guacamole…yum!

  36. Stephanie August 17, 2011 at 10:45 am #

    The new cookbook looks great. I love her desserts and would also love to try the hamburger roll recipe, as my family has been enjoying BLT’s lately. Also, I have
    3 of her cookbooks, all fabulous! The Ultimate GF Cookie Book is awesome!
    And The GF Kitchen and You Won’t Believe It’s GF are both great too!

  37. eiren August 17, 2011 at 11:25 am #

    5 minutes?? for a bun! LOVE!! I would make a chickpea, kale, onion and salmon burger with lettuce, tomato and mushroomS! yum-o!

  38. michele johnson August 17, 2011 at 12:07 pm #

    I’d probably make a cheeseburger first. Then a bbq pork sandwich. I would love to win this cookbook, but if I don’t I will definitely buy it off amazon! Thanks for the reviews. :)

  39. Ann August 17, 2011 at 12:13 pm #

    That bun would be wonderful filled with my favorite: a fried egg, a slice of Veggie jalapeno jack “cheese,” and a slather of butter. Yum!

  40. Kristi August 17, 2011 at 12:36 pm #

    Ohh…an actual hamburger on a bun?? Would love that…Or even a simple sandwich like Ham & cheese, or peanut butter & jelly….I so miss bread!

  41. Laura August 17, 2011 at 12:55 pm #

    This book sounds great – especially for quick fixes!
    It is a toss up for me of what I would make first – either a grilled cheese sandwich OR a Brazilian X-tudo – hamburger patty, egg (cooked in the form of an omelet), bacon, cheese, tomato, lettuce, canned corn and potato sticks! Sounds weird but don’t mock it til you try it! You can also add mayo and ketchup. mmm

  42. Judy August 17, 2011 at 1:19 pm #

    I would love to win this cookbook and give it to my son who if GF…in the meantime, I would make a turkey burger with feta cheese and parsley inside and sauteed onions to top it off. Getting hungry! The cookbook looks intriguing…thanks!

  43. Lois Keffer August 17, 2011 at 1:51 pm #

    I’d have to have grilled chicken breast with bacon, melty swiss and sliced avos!

  44. Lynn August 17, 2011 at 3:13 pm #

    This book sounds amazing. I must get this book for my Daughter who is in University and has very little to cook or bake. Sounds just right for her!

  45. Lynn August 17, 2011 at 3:14 pm #

    I meant to say very little time

  46. Lyndsay Zoratti August 17, 2011 at 3:25 pm #

    This looks pretty fab I must say. I want to do gluten free for my Autistic boys but they love their bread textures! I try to avoid “bready” when I can and Bob’s red Mill gluten free mix works for me! I would make the boys bun pizzas for sure! I am thinking this book and Bob’s should wed! Great giveaway, thanks

  47. Chris August 17, 2011 at 6:04 pm #

    I don’t know what you would call it, but it would be big, and have a lot of meat. You know, like Dagwood would make.

  48. janice Galivan August 17, 2011 at 8:02 pm #

    I would make it into a club sandwich with a little bacon and some barbequed chicken and caesar salad dressing to top it off.

  49. geeta August 17, 2011 at 8:38 pm #

    Great idea of a book. I’ll give it to my child with celiac who is getting ready to head off to college. Now she can apply for college anywhere without hesitation!

  50. Keesha Summers August 17, 2011 at 9:35 pm #

    What a great idea for a cookbook! I’d use the bun to make a breakfast sandwich….scrambled egg, cheese, bacon and avocado.

  51. Carol August 17, 2011 at 10:57 pm #

    It is so great having so many wonderful cookbooks and recipes
    now available for everyone. This book looks like it has a lot
    of great ideas for all.

  52. Andrea August 18, 2011 at 12:04 am #

    A homeade black bean veggie burger, with melted cheese and avocado!!!!

  53. Emily August 18, 2011 at 8:13 am #

    Looks like a great book!! I would make just a regular grilled burger on my grill and then load it with lettuce, tomato, and relish, mustard, and ketchup.

  54. Robin Booker August 18, 2011 at 8:24 am #

    I would make a grilled chicken sandwich with cheese, bacon, and barbecue sauce. So yummy!

  55. Jessica August 18, 2011 at 8:28 am #

    This book looks awesome! My husband and I have been addicted to pesto, goat cheese burgers with spinach leaves. They are a-maz-ing!

  56. Sabrina Smith August 18, 2011 at 8:47 am #

    I have been dying for a BLT ever since I was diagnosed with Celiacs….If this book has a recipe for buns and bread that TASTES good, it’s on my list for new favorite book.

  57. Loyda Arrington August 18, 2011 at 8:55 am #

    This is awsome. Everytime my husband smokes brisket I eat it with corn tortillas while he eats a great big nice barbecue sandwich. I can’t wait to try it. I will be able to eat a nice barbecue sandwich like him. And what I like the most is if I want another one, I can just make one real quick. Isn’t that great, a hamburger bun in minutes!

  58. Kayla Bendle August 18, 2011 at 9:09 am #

    Would probably make a basil pesto,roasted red pepper and mozarella cheese with a chicken burger or sliced chicken deli meat for the sandwhich/burger; with a nice garden salad on the side 😉

  59. Jenna August 18, 2011 at 9:28 am #

    Either pulled pork or a classic hamburger with everything – ketchup, mustard, lettuce, tomato, and pickle.

  60. Tori Sinclair August 18, 2011 at 9:31 am #

    I am totally interested — I have one of her other books… it is really very good as well! Thanks for the review with pics! awesome.

  61. Tamara Wheeler August 18, 2011 at 11:01 am #

    OK, Jeanine, I think I’d like to try a sandwich on this bun…mayo, peanut butter and banana. Yeah, I know it sounds kinda (gross) interesting, but it was a favorite of mine while growing up and I’d love to find a spongy, moist bread to have it again. And my hat is always off to Roben Ryberg! She’s one of my all-time GF heros! Her cookbooks have made life a lot nicer for my family over the years. Happy baking! T

  62. Lynda Bond August 18, 2011 at 11:57 am #

    Would love to have this new cookbook!

  63. Marla August 18, 2011 at 1:40 pm #

    I’d have to make my favourite sandwich, introduced to me by my boyfriend :)

    One side of the bun is slathered in butter, the other side is slathered in mayo which has been mixed with cilantro, ground pepper and lemon juice. Then you put on a baked chicken breast and slices of fresh cucumber, and slice on the diagonal.

    Sandwiches are always better cut on the diagonal. Corner to corner!

  64. Karin Goodman August 18, 2011 at 3:37 pm #

    I would love to try the buns, we eat burgers without the bun and it gets boring. Also a BLT sandwich would be great.

  65. Heidi August 18, 2011 at 8:04 pm #

    Lots of delicious suggestions above…but based on what is in my fridge tonight – some incredibly lean headcheese and a little vinegar! Cool jellied delight on a hot summer night with a side of potato salad and a fresh cucumber from the garden.

  66. Collett Mazula August 19, 2011 at 8:04 am #

    I would make a mushroom swiss burger!! My favorite, and actually on a bun would be so delicious! Thanks for the recipe

  67. Sarah R. August 19, 2011 at 4:39 pm #

    Mmm! I think a grilled chicken burger with basil mayo!

  68. Alice August 20, 2011 at 3:55 pm #

    I have found your blog very handy as a guide for my gluten free cooking. I would make what I call Gaucho Burgers: GF Hamburger rolls with Argentinian grilled beef tenderloin with Chimichurri sauce.

  69. Elaina August 20, 2011 at 8:06 pm #

    This cookbook sounds interesting. I’d love to give it a try.

  70. Diamond August 21, 2011 at 9:36 am #

    I know we will own this book , but admit I would like to win it! I’m thinking turkey burger with grilled pineapple and caramelized onion, covered with some barbeque sauce.

  71. Donna DeSantis August 21, 2011 at 4:03 pm #

    the book sounds great. I would put sloppy Joe on the hamburger bun. Thanks

  72. Shelly August 22, 2011 at 8:57 am #

    I just found out about this website last week! I was searching for cinnamon buns and found this amazing blog! I’m so excited! I just found out at the beginning of the year I am gluten intolerant and I was pretty sure I would never have yummy biscuits or rolls (which is a MUST in the south)! Now I have made myself some yummy desserts and breads! Can’t wait to try other stuff!

    This book sounds amazing! What is extra great is I can just make one or two so quickly! I cook for just myself so it is always rough having to make a huge batch of something and freezing it. This would really help!

    If I had a hamburger bun right now I would make a beef patty with strips of cayenne crusted bacon, bleu cheese crumples, mixed greens, a slice of tomato, and bleu cheese dressing (I love bleu cheese)!

  73. Annie August 22, 2011 at 7:31 pm #

    Looks great! Thank you for the info.
    Garden Patties… Curried cashew & red lentil burger, with lettuce, sliced tomato & cucumber (+curry mayo).

  74. Lauren August 23, 2011 at 4:21 pm #

    I would make a cheeseburger with nothing but ketchup, plain, but my little man would love it :)

  75. Nancy August 25, 2011 at 6:34 pm #

    Rachel Rays bacon sloppy joes that my 12 year old loves to makes. Awesome!

  76. Katherine August 26, 2011 at 7:59 am #

    Yum! I’d slap a plain old grass-fed beef patty on that bun and pile it with grilled onions, a couple of jalapeno slices, dijon mustard, ketchup, Spectrum mayo, a tomato slice, and bread & butter pickle slices. Man, now I’m hungry again!

  77. Becky A August 26, 2011 at 8:05 am #

    This book looks great! I would make a turkey burger with cheese, tomato and mayo!

  78. Vanessa August 26, 2011 at 8:09 am #

    I can’t wait to make the red velvet cake! With the buns I think I would like to try it with a nice, juicy angus burger!

  79. Linda August 26, 2011 at 8:16 am #

    I would make a salmon burger–toast the roll and pan sear the salmon with some homemade garlic aioli and lettuce. Yum!

  80. AmyJo August 26, 2011 at 9:19 am #

    I would make a good old fashioned hamburger with all the fixings and enjoy on a quick 5 minute bun.

  81. Maddi E August 26, 2011 at 9:40 am #

    I have a delicious turkey burger recipe that I would love to try on this hamburger bun! Thank you so much for the great blog and giveaways!

  82. Mandeep Sandhu August 26, 2011 at 10:16 am #

    I would love to lightly toast that bread and make a provolone and baby spinach sandwich with garlic butter, to go along with a nice bowl of creamy tomato soup. Yum!

  83. Stephanie Veenendaal August 26, 2011 at 11:22 am #

    What an awesome sounding cook book! Our favorite way to eat hamburgers is to grill them and top with minced garlic, pepper jack cheese, and pineapple ring. That’s what I would use the bun for! Yummy!

  84. Amy August 26, 2011 at 11:33 am #

    I had the most amazing veggie burgers EVER at the Breakers and would love to try to replicate it! My 5 year old would love love love this!

  85. Katie Cragg August 26, 2011 at 8:03 pm #

    I would love to win this. :) Looks awesome. I would make a delicious turkey burger with Daiya cheddar cheese, bacon and avocado. Yummy.

  86. Veronica August 26, 2011 at 8:10 pm #

    I’d make a chicken salad sandwich, yum!

  87. Frankie August 26, 2011 at 8:21 pm #

    Grilled hamburger with blue cheese and butter packed on the inside, red onion Yum.

  88. Debbie Phillips August 26, 2011 at 9:16 pm #

    Wow! This bun looks fabulous! We are recently gluten-free, dairy-free and processed sugar free… let’s see….hmmmmm…. a grilled chicken sandwich with veggie cheese and mayo (Duke’s is sugar-free!)

  89. Debbie Phillips August 26, 2011 at 9:18 pm #

    oh…..I’d have to leave the sugar out of the bun…but a tad of agave or stevia could be substituted!

  90. Gwen Nowlna August 26, 2011 at 10:13 pm #

    I love the idea of some quick easy recipes – I have tried others and they were not so good, so this book may be a big hit!

  91. Heather Porrill August 26, 2011 at 10:24 pm #

    The microwave! Now that is interesting! I like that the bun recipe is for one bun! How handy is that.

  92. Bridget August 27, 2011 at 8:47 am #

    I would make my favorite stuffed burgers!! They are stuffed with sun-dried tomatoes, applewood smoked bacon, and gorgonzola cheese cooked over natural charcoal!

  93. B August 30, 2011 at 8:16 am #

    Made this bun several times now…. using banana instead of applesauce. I may freeze some applesauce in ice cube trays for this recipe. Still not too sweet… Easy! Have to agree with topping it with a bit of honey as a treat. After 5 years I have gotten used to burgers without buns … just wrapped in a lettuce leaf!

    I have limited mobility because of severe arthritis. Making food in 5 minutes in the microwave and in small amounts so I do not eat too much or waste it sounds really fantastic. This a book that will help me very much.

    I would make a chicken and avacado sandwich. Sometimes I really crave a sandwhich and it is nice to know that it could take as little as 2minutes to do it. I am going to give this recipe a try.
