Dairy free, vegetarian Lebanese-Style Eggplant Sandwiches with Garlic Dip will be your veggie go to. BBQ the eggplant with the hood down for a char grilled flavour.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium eggplant (300g), sliced into 1.5cm thick rounds
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • ½ cup coarsely chopped mint leaves
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 4 slices Helga’s Soy & Linseed Bread
  • 1/3 cup (90g) hummus
  • 2 tbsp garlic dip

Method

  1. Place eggplant in a medium bowl. Drizzle with half the oil; season and toss to coat. Cook eggplant on a heated grill plate or barbecue (see tip) over medium-high heat for 5 minutes each side or until tender and grill marks appear. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Meanwhile, combine herbs, lemon juice and remaining oil in a medium bowl; season and toss to combine.
  3. Lay a sheet of baking paper on a chopping board; top with bread slices. Spread 2 slices with hummus, then top with eggplant and herb mixture. Spread remaining bread slices with garlic dip; place, garlic-dip-side down, over herb mixture.

Tip: You can trim the eggplant to fit the sandwich in step 3, if you like.

Swap: Use capsicum instead of eggplant and baba ganoush instead of hummus.

Tip: If cooking eggplant on a barbecue, cook with the hood down.
