  • Total time1 hr


  • 2 1 or 2 large, round sweet potatoes, peeled
  • 1 Essential Aubergine
  • 2 tbsp Essential Olive Oil
  • 1 unwaxed lime, zest and juice
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 4 ciabatta rolls
  • 2 tbsp vegan mayo
  • ½ small clove garlic, finely grated
  • ¼ red cabbage, finely shredded
  • 150g pack Holy Moly Original Guacamole


  1. Preheat the oven to 220oC, gas mark 7, and line a large baking tray with foil. Cut 4 x 2cm-thick slices from the widest part of the potato(es) and cut the aubergine into 1.5cm-thick rounds. Brush all sides of the potato and aubergine with oil and arrange on the tray in a single layer. Cook for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the lime juice, cumin and maple syrup in a small bowl.

  2. Remove the tray from the oven. Brush the lime and cumin mix over one side of the aubergine and potato, then turn and brush the other side. Season and return to the oven for 15 minutes, or until all the vegetables are golden and tender.

  3. Remove the vegetables from the baking tray and set aside, covered with foil, to keep warm. Put the ciabatta rolls on the tray and bake for 8 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl, combine the lime zest with the vegan mayo and garlic. Toss in the red cabbage and season.

  4. Split open the ciabatta rolls, spread the base of each with guacamole and top with a slice of sweet potato. Arrange the aubergine slices on top, then add a heap of red cabbage. Serve straight away.

Cook’s tip

Waste not: Sweet potato. Cut trimmings into wedges and roast on a separate tray for serving alongside the burgers.

And to drink...

Maree d’Ione Organic Fiano, Puglia, Italy (75cl), is a deliciously fresh and zesty white wine that’s suitable for vegans.
