15 ml

toasted sunflower seeds

1 small clove

garlic, crushed

45 ml

chopped parsley

2 rounds

feta cheese, crumbled


  • Preheat the oven to 190°C.

  • Arrange the brinjal slices on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.

  • Season with salt and pepper and drizzle a little olive oil over. Roast for 20 minutes. Take the baking sheet out of the oven and flip the slices.

  • Also add the tomatoes and roast for another 10 minutes or until the brinjal slices are cooked through and the tomatoes are cooked but not too soft.

  • Arrange the chicken burgers on another sheet, drizzle a little olive oil over and cook according to the packet instructions.

  • Be careful not to overcook the burgers as they’ll become dry.

Preheat the grill

  • Grill the pepper on all sides until it’s black and blistered.

  • Place the pepper in a bowl, cover with clingfilm and leave to cool. Peel off the skin, chop and mix with the rest of the topping ingredients.

To serve

  • Arrange a brinjal slice on a plate, top with a burger, tomato slice and another brinjal slice and sprinkle some of the topping over. Serve warm.
