Eggplant Veggie Burger

by Cindy Yanasha Angulo

Such an easy Meatless Monday dish! Use eggplant slices instead of bread for buns, & a black bean burger instead of meat.  My secret ingredient (truffle oil!) makes it taste like a rich, gourmet treat. This is a delicious, filling way to cut calories & stay fit!


Time: 15 mins 


  • 2 black bean burgers
  • 4 slices of eggplant (skin on)
  • 1 tablespoon feta chesse
  • 1 tablespoon black truffle oil
  • Tomato slices
  • Salt/pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • Olive oil to cook the eggplant


  1. Heat the black bean burger according to instructions (or use a homemade one!)
  2. Pan-sear the eggplant slices on both sides over medium heat for ~3 mins per side.
  3. Sprinkle with salt, pepper & rosemary. 
  4. Drizzle 1/2 tablespoon of truffle oil on their side of the eggplant & sprinkle with feta cheese on the one side right before putting the burger patty in between them.
  5. Top with tomatoes, extra feta cheese, and whatever other toppings you like!
