DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Roast the eggplant by cutting it into 1/4″ slices and brushing each side with olive oil.
  • Bake for 10 minutes on one side, then flip the slices and bake for another 5 minutes.
  • Place the diced red onion and 2 teaspoons of olive oil in a skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the onion softens.
  • Remove eggplant from the oven, turn the oven down to 400 degrees.
  • Stir together the eggplant, onion, beans, bell pepper, parsley, pine nuts, garlic, sea salt, hummus and cumin in a large bowl.
  • Blend the mixture in a food processor - about 15 seconds.
  • Pour the mixture back into a bowl, stir in the breadcrumbs, and use your hands to make four large patties.
  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray the foil with olive oil or nonstick cooking spray. Place the patties on the foil.
  • Bake for 45 minutes, turning them over halfway through.
  • Remove the burgers from the oven, top with hummus or tahini sauce, and enjoy!
