How To Prepare Eggplant Burgers With Yogurt-feta Sauce And Quick Pickled Cucumbers ?


Preparation time: 25 mins

Cooking time: 15 mins

Serving: 4


  • 6 oz. feta cheese
  • 1/3 c. plain whole-milk yogurt
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. lemon zest plus 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. sumac
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 large English cucumber
  • Canola oil, for grill grates
  • 1 medium eggplant, sliced into 1/2-inch-thick rounds
  • 1 large red pepper, halved and seeded
  • 4 sourdough or ciabatta buns, split


  1. Puree feta and yogurt in a food processor until smooth, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Whisk together lemon zest and juice, sumac, and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Using a vegetable peeler, shave cucumber into ribbons; toss with lemon dressing. 
  1. Set up grill for direct cooking and heat to medium-high. Once hot, clean and lightly oil grates with canola oil.
  1. Brush eggplant with remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill over direct heat, turning occasionally, until just tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Grill pepper, turning often, until charred, 5 to 6 minutes; cut into wide strips. Grill buns until toasted, 1 minute. Spread yogurt sauce on buns. Top with peppers, eggplant, and cucumbers.
