Delicious sesame crusted eggplant slices make the "burger". Beetroot hummus is spread on the eggplant and topped with salad for a fun meal.

The hummus has a little spicy kick that can be altered to taste. It makes a great spread and can be served as a dip.

The eggplant can be stored in the fridge overnight if making ahead

Preheat the oven to 220 degrees. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
Place the eggplant onto the baking tray and bake for 15 - 20 minutes until golden and cooked through.
Put the salad ingredients in a bowl, toss to combine.
Lay one piece of eggplant crust side down, spread hummus on top, add salad and place a eggplant slice on top.

Tips
Precooked organic beetroot can be found at some supermarkets and specialty shops. Alternatively, wrap beetroot in foil and bake at 200 degrees for 45 minutes until soft. Allow to cool. Wear gloves and peel before dicing.
The hummus can be made the day before to develop flavours.
