Vegan eggplant wild rice burgers
4 slices of GF bread for making bread crumbs
2 eggplants roasted
1 cup wild rice boiled
1 shallot finely chopped
1 large garlic clove crushed
100 g smoked tofu crumbled
1 cup shredded jalapeño pepper soy cheese
3 tbs fresh chopped parsley
First I dried out some GF bread in a preheated 200F for about 30 min.
I roasted the eggplant.
I peeled it and let it drain for about 1hr. Then I finely chopped it.
I boiled the wild rice and let it cool completely. In a large bowl, I put the eggplant, added the wild rice, crumbled tofu, cheese, shallot, garlic, parsley and half of the bread crumbs. Mixed it well and started forming the burgers.
I ran each burger through the bread crumb mix. I let the burgers cool down in the refrigerator for an hour before I cooked them. I used a griddle to cook mine.
I also made a spicy sauce to go with the burgers.
I didn’t really use specific quantities. I mixed little by little until I got it perfect to my taste.
