I started this recipe as an eggplant pie. But after making it I think vegetarian eggplant burger with tomatoes is a more accurate description. I wanted to make a pie, but vegetarian people will confirm that this is a tasty alternative for a classic burger.
Regular readers of surprising.recipes will know that I like a special kind of burger every now and then. But I am really not a fan of the breads in which they are mostly served. So I try to look for alternatives. In this case I ended up with a very healthy alternative: tomatoes.
You can make some variations on this recipe if you want. Of course you can add some minced meat. It combines very well with the eggplant. For example I would do this when I make it for my father. He loves vegetarian food with a piece of meat 😉
Another possibility is to add some grounded walnuts. They add some crunchy bite. Be creative and do not hesitate to send me your ideas! Maybe they will feature in one of the next recipes!
