Keto Eggplant Burgers Recipe
"You’d never have thought that Chinese cuisine would naturally produce delicious Keto burgers, but there it is! This has been one of my favorite dishes growing up in a Chinese household, and I’m really excited to finally share it with you. This eggplant burger recipe sticks pretty closely to the traditional Chinese recipe (often called Qiezi He or Qie He). A better translation of the traditional Chinese dish is probably Eggplant. buns but honestly, it’s like mini burgers that use eggplant slices as the “buns"."
Preparation Time15 min
Cooking Time20 min
- 225 grams ground pork
- (1-pound) Japanese (smaller) eggplants (approx. 2 eggplants)
- 2 green onions, diced small
- 1 tablespoon ginger, minced
- 2 tablespoons gluten-free tamari sauce or coconut aminos (30 ml)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Dash of pepper
- 4 cloves of garlic, minced
- 4 tablespoons gluten-free tamari sauce or coconut aminos (60 ml)
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
Cut the eggplants into 1-inch thick slices. Then make a small cut through them to form “burger buns” that are still joined together.
Mix the ground pork, green onions, ginger, tamari sauce, salt, and pepper together. Stuff this meat mixture into the “buns.”
Steam for 20 minutes.
To make the dipping sauce, mix together the garlic, tamari sauce, sesame oil, and vinegar in a small bowl.
Serve the cooked eggplant burgers with the dipping sauce.
