Ingredients

  • 2 frozen meatless hamburger-style patties with about 100 calories each
  • 1 eggplant, about the width of the patties
  • 1/2 cup canned crushed tomatoes
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Chopped fresh basil, for garnish

Directions

Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat on the stove.

Remove the ends of the eggplant. Cut three 3/4-inch-wide eggplant slices. Pat dry, if needed. Save the rest for another use.

Place the eggplant slices and patties in the skillet and cook for 3 to 5 minutes; flip, and cook for an additional 3 to 5 minutes, until fully cooked.

Meanwhile, to make the sauce, combine tomatoes with Italian seasoning in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave for about 30 seconds, until hot. Mix well. If you like, add additional Italian seasoning, to taste.

Plate one eggplant slice and top with a spoonful of sauce; evenly top with a burger patty. Alternate layering the remaining eggplant slices and burger patty, adding a spoonful of sauce in between each layer. Cover your "tower" with all of the remaining sauce. Garnish with basil.

Grab a fork and knife and dig in!
