Farmhouse Veggie Burger

I saw this Farmhouse Veggie Burger recipe on the Food Network courtesy of the Farm Cafe in Portland Oregon and decided to try it out since my mouth wouldn’t stop watering. This savory veggie burger is well received amongst vegetarians and carnivores alike. Serve it with some homemade sweet potato fries for a complete meal.

Farmhouse Veggie Burger
 
Ingredients
  • 2 whole eggplant, peeled and diced
  • 2 scallions chopped
  • 1 Tbs minced parsley
  • 1 cup shredded medium cheddar * I used feta to stay with the Mediterranean theme.
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 3.4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 3 Tbs olive oil
Instructions
  1. Sauté eggplant on low heat till grey and very soft
  2. Mix together eggplant other ingredients, except for the olive oil & let rest for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  3. Form into 6 equal patties about an inch thick
  4. * I only used ½ these ingredients and was able to get 3 generous sized patties. The full recipe should yield 6 patties.
  5. In a sauté pan, heat olive oil, cook patties on each side for about 5 minutes. These could also be grilled or baked until golden brown.
  6. Serve with roasted red bell peppers, fresh spinach & spicy mustard!
