Serves 4


For the burger

2 large eggplants
Olive oil
1/2 T fresh chopped garlic
4 Ostrich burger patties
Chevin (goats cheese)

For the side salad

Fresh basil, torn
Baby tomatoes, sliced
Red onion, thinly sliced
Pinch of sugar
1 Tbls red wine vinegar
Salt and black pepper to taste

To serve (optional)

Jalapeno chillies, chilli and garlic salsa in oil, or freshly chopped chillies


Pre-heat the oven to 180°C with the top grill on high.

Slice the eggplant into thick disks, arrange in a single layer on a baking tray and drizzle liberally with olive oil. Bake for 10 – 15 minutes until golden and starting to char (flip halfway through the cooking if necessary).

Remove from the oven into a sealable container. Season well with salt and add the fresh garlic. Close the lid and shake gently, allow to infuse for a few minutes.

Meanwhile, grill the ostrich patties to your liking (they are best served medium rare).

For the salad: Combine all the ingredients, toss and allow to stand for at least ten minutes before serving.

To serve: Place the ostrich patty on a serving plate, top with a layer of eggplant and a slice of chevin.

Serve with the side salad and chillies.
