What will you do if you have a bountiful harvest of aubergines or if they are available at low, low prices at the market? Why, you can cook them into many different ways, like hamburgers! Yes, you can.

Here’s a recipe of aubergine vegetarian hamburger that I learned from a vegetarian friend of mine. I enjoyed doing it. I hope that you will, too.

    Make it vegetarian by using a vegetarian cheese instead of Parmesan or make it vegan by either omitting the cheese or using a dairy free version like violife.
    Parmesan is NEVER suitable for veggies. Nice use for aubergines though will give it a go!
