An Italian vegie burger


  • Cook the seasoned eggplant, zucchini and capsicum on a lightly oiled, preheated ridged grill (or BBQ) until blistered and tender, spraying with oil as you do so.
  • While the vegies are cooking, mix together the pesto, mayonnaise, sour cream, garlic and a squeeze of lemon juice. Taste for seasoning.
  • When the vegies are ready, remove or push to the side and grill the tomatoes and buns.
  • To serve, smear the pesto mayo on each burger bottom and top with the tomatoes, vegies, cos, another dollop of mayo, the parmesan and bun tops. Press down lightly and enjoy!
