Saucy Eggplant Patty Tower
PER SERVING (entire recipe): 280 calories, 6g fat, 905mg sodium, 31.5g carbs, 15g fiber, 9g sugars, 25g protein -- PointsPlus® value 6*
- 2 frozen meatless hamburger-style patties with about 100 calories each (like Boca Original Vegan)
- 1 eggplant, about the width of the patties
- 1/2 cup canned crushed tomatoes
- 1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning, or more to taste
- Optional: chopped fresh basil
Remove the ends of the eggplant. Cut three 3/4-inch-wide eggplant slices. Pat dry, if needed. Save the rest for another use.
Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat on the stove. Place eggplant slices and patties in the skillet and cook for 3 - 5 minutes.
Flip slices and patties and cook for an additional 3 - 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, season with additional Italian seasoning.
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. If you like, garnish with basil.
Grab a fork and knife and dig in!
