Spicy Hamburger with Homemade Relish & Pineapple


  • 4 beef hamburgers
  • 2 tsp. cumin seeds
  • 1 can sliced pineapple
  • Olive oil
  • Fresh basil
  • Gluten-free buns  

Homemade relish:

  • Cut up onion and purple onion
  • 1 tsp. red wine
  • 3 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 4 Tbsp. brown sugar


  1. Begin by starting your homemade relish. Turn the burner on medium low and begin by simmering your cut up onion.
  2. Once onions are translucent, put in the red wine, balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar, and the brown sugar.
  3. Let simmer until it smells all sorts of wonderful. Once done, put in a bowl and set aside.
  4. While your homemade relish is simmering, place the cumin seeds in a skillet over medium heat for 3-4 minutes. Then place onto cutting board and crush with a rolling pin so it will easily coat the beef hamburger patties.
  5. Grill the slices of pineapple from the can for 3-4 minutes per side. Take off the grill and cut into smaller pieces on a cutting board. Place into bowl with homemade relish.
  6. Brush or spray the hamburger patties with olive oil and then coat with the cumin seeds, doing your best to make both sides even.
  7. Place burgers on the grill to cook evenly, approximately 5 minutes per side.
  8. Take burgers off of grill and place on a gluten-free bun with fresh basil. Top the cumin-coated burger with the homemade relish and pineapple. Place on a plate with your desired side dish (we made grilled steak fries) and eat your gluten-free heart out!
