Sesame Seed Burger Buns: Gluten-free


This gluten-free hamburger bun goes great with the Black Bean burger and melted almond cheese.

Sesame Burger Bun
2 3/4 cups all-purpose gluten free four (Bob’s Redmill)
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons apple sauce
1/4 cup Earth Balance buttery spread or shortening
1 cup unsweetened soy milk
1 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup raw sesame seeds 

Mix together dry ingredients. Cut in shortening using two knives, a food processor or a hand mixer. Mixture should look crumbly. Combine soy milk and vinegar and pour into flour mixture. Mix to incorporate all ingredients and form a dough. Dough should be moist and smooth, not sticky. If it is sticky add most flour, a little bit at a time. Divide dough into 6 balls. Pat each ball into a round about 3 1/2 inches by 1/2 inch. Put the sesame seeds on a plate or in a bowl and press one side of the dough in it to get covered with the seeds. Repeat for the others. Place the rounds on a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake at 375F for about 12-15 minutes, until lightly golden brown. Makes 6 buns.
