Eggplant Hummus Veggie Burgers

Eggplant Hummus Veggie Burgers
It’s that time of year again to crank out the charcoal! My husband and I are enjoying our new garden space and have been grilling with friends every weekend. My friend Diana and I experimented with different ingredients to put on the grill like Lacinato kale and even Asian dumplings! The dumplings didn’t turn out too well but the kale tasted delicious, I highly recommend it. This new burger recipe was an idea I thought of because we were eating way too much meat. I wanted something light, but still really wanted to eat a burger! It’s great for your vegetarian friends and also an incredibly simple and healthier alternative to a filling meaty burger.

These Eggplant Hummus Veggie Burgers are my submission for #BurgerWeek over on NoshOnIt. Be sure to scroll down and check out other unique burgers from top food bloggers, plus a Broil King gas grill giveaway!

    I love eggplant and hummus but never tried them in burger form. Pinning!

      Thanks, Carla! I pinned yours too and it looks amazing!

    This looks very delicious, but white bread turns to sugar so quickly. Maybe dark Toasted Chia Seed & Soy style bread, would be a good choice to replace the potential sugar in this recipe for sugar conscious dinners.

    Oh my word, these burgers are amazing! Before we’d even finished our meal my husband was asking when we could have them again! I made his with buns as shown but for mine I used the eggplant slices as the bun and put the suggested fillings inside – Delicious!
