  1. Lay eggplant rounds on a work surface. Cut a small slit horizontally through each round, making a pocket to form 'burger buns' that are still joined together.
  2. Mix ground pork, 2 tablespoons tamari, green onions, ginger, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl. Stuff mixture into the 'buns.'
  3. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add the stuffed buns and cover. Steam until tender and pork is only slightly pink in the center, about 20 minutes.
  4. Mix 1/4 cup tamari, garlic, sesame oil, and vinegar together in a small bowl to make the dipping sauce. Serve with the cooked eggplant burgers.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Apple cider or white wine vinegar both work in this recipe.
  • Coconut aminos can be substituted for the tamari sauce, if desired.
