What makes a good hamburger? I was never really too picky about how I seasoned my hamburgers because any burger tastes good when topped with American cheese and ketchup and served on a potato roll. It was not until I had to eat cheese-less, bun-less and sometimes ketchup-less burgers that I really cared about what they were seasoned with. Unsure of what to season my hamburgers with one night, I grabbed a packet of Sazon Goya. I had never used Sazon Goya in this capacity, as it was something that I used exclusively to create Spanish style rice and beans. To my delight this was the one of the most serendipitous discoveries in my kitchen and my typically bland hamburgers were transformed into a delightful meal.
I did not realize it then but Sazon Goya is not allowed on the candida diet. I have to make a yeast free Sazon Goya and it is the key to these very simple yeast free burgers. Well seasoned hamburgers can be a quick and tasty meal on the candida diet and are great to have on hand for barbecues. I usually enjoy these on a plate without any toppings or between two rice cakes if I really want a the whole hamburger fee;. There are lots of different seasonings you can use for your hamburgers while still remaining yeast free. If this recipe does not suit your tastes do experiment with other seasonings until you create your perfect burger.
