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!
