1. Commence by heating a heavy-based griddle pan to medium-high heat. Coat your eggplant with olive oil on both sides, then fry until soft and griddle-lines visible. This should take 5-7 minutes for each side. When cooked, place in a shallow bowl and drizzle balsamic vinegar and brown sugar over eggplant. 2. Meanwhile, make your guacamole by loosely mashing together the onion, tomato, avocado, and lime juice. Set aside. 3. Heat a splash of olive oil in a small frying pan, and fry your mushrooms for 7-10 minutes until soft, adding some seasoning right at the end. 4. When the mushrooms are nearly done, heat up some olive oil in a separate frying pan and toast your garlic for 2-3 minutes. Flash fry the eggplant. 5. Toast your bread, then layer on the avocado, followed by the mushrooms. Top it off with your gorgeous, glazed eggplant slices. Serve immediately. Voila! A medley of flavors to be enjoyed by just about anyone. You can thank me later.
