I’m still obsessing over the Simple Seasoned Eggplant Steaks that I made a couple weeks ago. The tangy flavor and toothsome texture of the eggplant were so tasty, I just couldn’t pass up using the steaks in another recipe. So here you have it: Vegan Eggplant Burger Stacks!
All the goodness of a lettuce-wrapped burger with no meat — and being a meat-eater myself, I promise you won’t even miss it. After your first crunch of the lettuce “buns” with a delicious assortment of burger toppings, you’ll be a believer. I used tangy red pepper slices, baby spinach leaves, Clean Caramelized Onions (nomz), and creamy avocado slices instead of spread. Feel free to top your burger with your favorite gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, or Paleo toppings. The best part about this recipe is how completely customizable it is!
Whether you’re vegan, detoxing, or just looking to get more veggies in your diet, this simple “burger” stack is a perfect, healthy option.
Vegan Eggplant Burger Stacks (serves 4-6)
grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, casein-free, soy-free, sugar-free, nut-free, Paleo, vegan
