I just made eggplant and black bean veggie burgers from scratch.

I am not a good cook; I just throw things together. These came out good.

Our eggplants this year turned out to be long and very thin. I half-peeled a dozen, threw them in the chopper, did same with an onion and a drained can of black beans and three jalapeņos we grew. Drained it some through a sieve, added two eggs and a little brown sugar. It was too wet so added bread crumbs.

Just fried up a patty and it sure looks and tastes like a burger to me. 🙂

1. Sounds good to me and I'm not even a vegetarian.

2. I'm not really either but I was desperate to use those eggplants.

There's only so much eggplant Parmesan a person can stand. Lol

3. grilled eggplant - so good

slice longwise between 1/4 and 1/2 inch thick. brush (or spray) olive oil on both sides, sprinkle with salt pepper and lots of crumbled oregano. grill over gas or coals until crispy (or however you like)

serve hot with sour cream, tzatziki, or similar cool creamy dip

5. Thanks for the idea

I've made veggie burgers before, but never used eggplant.
I often add mushrooms for a little extra flavor

8. That sounds a *lot* like my favorite burger recipe, which I've posted here a couple of times ...

Um, minus the eggplant, that is.

My favorite variation: one can each of chickpeas and black beans (I'd use fava beans if our local store carried them), topped w/tahini sauce (basically, 2:1 tahini:lemon juice). The texture is nothing like felafel, despite similar ingredients, but felafel inspired my choices.
