Haloumi is one of our favourite burger ingredients - the hearty cheese makes for a filling and flavourful meal. But the flavour doesn't stop there, no we have roasted eggplant, mildly spiced onions and a generous spread of hummus to turn the whole thing into a Middle Eastern burger feast!

Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Cut the kumara (unpeeled) into 1cm wedges. Place the kumara, a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Toss to coat, then roast for 25-30 minutes, or until tender.


While the kumara is roasting, slice the baby eggplant into 2cm rounds. Place the eggplant, olive oil (2 1/2 tbs for 2 people / 1/3 cup for 4 people) and a generous pinch of salt and pepper on a second oven tray lined with baking paper. Toss to coat, then roast for 20-25 minutes, or until tender.


While the eggplant is roasting, thinly slice the brown onion. Cut the haloumi (see ingredients list) into 1cm slices (you should get 2 slices per person). Place the haloumi slices in a small bowl of cold water and set aside to soak. TIP: Soaking haloumi mellows out the saltiness!


When the veggies have 10 minutes cook time remaining, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a medium frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes, or until softened. Add the harissa paste and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the water, brown sugar and balsamic vinegar, and simmer until the liquid is nearly evaporated and the mixture is slightly sticky. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper and transfer to a medium bowl.


Place the burger buns on a wire rack in the oven for 3 minutes, or until heated through. Wipe out the frying pan and return to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Drain the haloumi and pat dry with paper towel. Add the haloumi and cook for 2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown


Slice the burger buns in half. Spread the base of the burger buns with the hummus (see ingredients list) and top with the haloumi, roasted eggplant, harissa onion and mixed salad leaves. Serve with the kumara wedges.
