Grain free Wetburgers


I may not be able to consume grains but this fact, combined with the fact that I am such a foodie, gives such interesting results.

Wetburgers, one of the most famous Street foods of Turkey. A delicious hamburger, completely soaked in delicious tomato and garlic sauce. Stirs my childhood memories, those school days we walked to Taksim square, arm in arm. Passing wetburger shops and sniffing it all in.

It’s common to eat 5 or 6 of them, maybe even more.

But I bet they were never made grain free.
