Check out this delicious Roasted Eggplant dish made using Amino Mantra’s Black Truffle and Thyme Plant Patties. As you probably already know this range of plant patties are my absolute favourite! There’s five flavours (all vegan and gluten free) to choose from and they are super versatile.

You can literally add whatever you want to stuff your eggplant – but the combo in this recipe is a gourmet taste sensation for your taste buds.

Amino Mantra’s plant patties are available around NZ at smaller food stores and some supermarkets, click here for a list of locations.

Choose from: Sundried Tomato & Basil – makes a delish pasta sauce, Caramelised Onion & Garlic, Fijian Turmeric & Cumin, Smoky BBQ -perfect for burgers, and Black Truffle and Thyme.
