      Guilt free food does not mean it should taste bad. My recipe for this delectable vegetarian burger patties are packed with an array of healthy ingredients! Main star would be the eggplant, a very versatile ingredient that has a unique flavor. Deliciously savory, this dish can be eaten with rice, burger buns, sandwich bread, or even ala carte! By the way, I was able to make 12 patties with this recipe.

      This serves:

      • 6 People: If with rice, 2 patties per plate.
      • 12 People: If eaten sandwich/burger style.

      Here’s how the ingredients should be prepared:

      1. Eggplant sliced into 3 parts. Wound the skin vertically so that it is easy to peel it once boiled.
      2. Mince the garlic (you can use food processor)
      3. Mince the onion (you can use food processor)
      4. Chop green onions
      5. Grate cheddar cheese

      Steps

      1
      Done

      Boil water for 5 minutes then add-in the eggplant for 15 minutes.
      Drain them and let it cool for 5 to 10 minutes.

      2
      Done

      While eggplant is boiling, to save time do instructions 2 to 5 on the preparation guide above.
      It should result to the following:
      - Minced Onions
      - Minced Garlic
      - Chopped Chives
      - Grated Cheddar Cheese

      3
      Done

      Once eggplant has cooled. separate them into two equal parts.
      - Half of these eggplants should be peeled and MASHED.
      - The other half be chopped into 1 inch cubes with skin on.

      4
      Done

      Put mashed and chopped eggplant into a mixing bowl.
      Add in the Garlic, Onions, Chives, Black Pepper, Cheese, and Salt Mix them thoroughly.

      5
      Done

      Add in the flour, breadcrumbs, and 2 eggs then mix again. Make sure it is equally mixed.
      These 3 ingredients will serve as a binder. You will want to get a sticky consistency which is not too dry.

      Note:
      If the mixture is too wet, which happens if eggplant have not been drained well, you can try adding some more flour or breadcrumbs.

      6
      Done

      At this point, you will have your mixture ready for cooking.
      Pre-heat the your pan using 120 degrees celsius. for 3 minutes.

      7
      Done

      I use an ice cream scoop to portion my burgers evenly.
      You can scoop directly from your mixing bowl to the pan then flatten them to your desired size with a fork.

      The sizzle will be satisfying!

      8
      Done

      Cook each side for 3 minutes or until golden / dark brown.
      It will start to look like a real burger.

      The time for cooking the full patty mixture will be based on the size of your pan. I used a WOK where I was able to cook three (3) patties per batch.

      9
      Done

      Drain any excess oil and SERVE!
      Great with Rice, Bread or even Ala-carte!

      P.S. I couldn't find burger buns so I just settled with white bread & rice for the images.

      I'm a self taught cook for my wife and daughter. Favorites are fried stuff and salads! I know it's two different sides of the coin haha.
