Fast and Easy Ground Beef Substitute

I've tried a few different brands of ground beef substitutes but haven't found one I really love.  No more worries about that though because now I just make my own!

3c eggplant, finely chopped (1 - medium size)
3c portobello mushrooms, finely chopped (3 - medium size)
1c onion, finely chopped
1/4c olive oil
1/8c balsamic vinegar
1 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp. black pepper

1.  Preheat oven to 350*

2.  In a large bowl, combine the eggplant, mushrooms, and onion.

3.  Add olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  Use your hands to mix it really well.

4.  Spread onto a foil-lined baking sheet and sprinkle with the garlic powder and pepper.

5.  Bake 20 minutes, then remove from oven and allow to cool completely.

Easy!  Make a big batch and freeze in plastic bags. 
Defrost just as you would ground beef.

  1. No, I've never peeled eggplant. It just always seems unnecessary to me.
