Ingredients

For the eggplant buns:

  • 1 medium to large sized eggplant sliced into 3/4 inch thick rounds
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt and pepper

For the burger:

  • 4 lean organic grass-fed ground beef patties, grilled or cooked
  • sautéed mushrooms sliced
  • lettuce
  • tomatoes sliced
  • dijon mustard
  • ketchup
  • any other condiments as desired

Instructions

For the eggplant buns:

  • Heat up your grill. Brush each eggplant round with olive oil and season lightly with salt and pepper. Grill each eggplant round over medium-high heat for about 4 to 5 minutes or until grill marks appear and the eggplant is heated through and slightly softened. Repeat on opposite side but only grill for about 3 to 4 minutes.

For the burger:

  • To assemble: Spread on dijon mustard on one eggplant round, top with the cooked beef patty, mushrooms, lettuce, tomatoes and add any other condiments as desired and top with another grilled eggplant "bun" round and serve.
