Notes

I have used ready made Coleslaw blend that is shredded cabbage and carrots. You may choose to shred it yourself.
If you consume dairy feel free to use whole milk or Greek yogurt for the non-dairy one.
MorningStar Farms products are an "as-is" meal solution so toppings are totally customizable.
You may skip the grilled eggplant . 
You may add sliced olives, onions, cucumber to the burger as well.
You may swap coleslaw with hummus, tzatziki or sauce of your choice.
You may even use sandwich bread to make this delicious recipe.
