The obvious low-carb bun option is a crispy bed of iceberg lettuce. I’ll admit it has merit — refreshing, crunchy & guilt-free. But sometimes you want something more — more substantial, more bread-like. Nutrient-rich, high-fiber ground flaxseed ensures this recipe’s low-carb footprint, while apple cider vinegar combines with baking soda to lend these buns the airy lift we expect from a yeast bread. A great base layer for Apple Turkey Burgers, Salmon Cakes or for a lighter, vegetarian option, try a Zucchini Latke.

Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment.
