Assemble Your Ingredients

Assemble your ingredients.

Combine all Burger Ingredients and Form Burger Patties

Combine all the burger ingredients and form individual burger patties.

Separate Patties Using Wax Paper

Separate patties using wax paper and put them in the fridge to ‘settle’ for 4-6 hours. (Tip: brush some olive oil on the pan/tray before you put the burgers on it to prevent sticking later.)

Start with a Can of Coconut Milk

Now the mayo. Start with the can of coconut milk…

Add the Juice of One Lime

…add juice of one lime…

One Mashed Garlic Clove

…one mashed garlic clove…

Simmer for about 3 Hours, Should Thicken and " Burp"

…and simmer. For a long time. We had this on the stove on low simmer for about three hours. Once it starts to thicken up it ‘burps’ and makes quite a mess so keep an eye on it.

Eventually, Emulsify by Pulsing in a Food Processor

Eventually we emulsified it by pulsing it in the food processor and it thickened up beautifully. Looks like mayo – tastes like coconuts. Yummy.

Slice your Pineapple

Slice your pineapple. Since we want slices for this recipe we’re doing it a bit different than our usual way.

Cut into Burger Sized Portions

Cut into burger-sized portions. Thinner is better so your burger doesn’t end up being too tall.

Grill Slices on Medium Heat for about 8 Minutes Total

Grill slices on direct medium heat for about 8 minutes total. When you take the slices off the grill stack them together so they retain some of their juices as their cooling.

Grill your Burgers on Medium Heat -  Should Take About 12 Minutes

Grill your burgers using direct medium heat. Should take about…12 minutes or so.

Coat Bun GENEROUSLY Coconut Mayo, Add Burger, Pineapple and Other Desired Toppings

Coat a bun GENEROUSLY with coconut mayo, add the burger, the pineapple and whatever other toppings you desire (we splashed a bit of teriyaki sauce on top just for fun). This turned out to be a scrumptious recipe. I believe one of our tweens even described it as her “…favourite burger ever”. So…give it a try.
