Try this grilled eggplant recipe that utilizes lots of herbs to give it a nice pop! Pro tip – To make sure your eggplant isn’t bitter, lay cute slices on a paper towel, salt, and allow the juices to run out. It helps decrease the chance of any bitter aftertastes!
- 1 eggplant
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- ¼ cup fresh oregano, finely chopped
- ¼ cup fresh dill, finely chopped
- ¼ cup fresh thyme, finely chopped
- ¼ cup fresh basil, finely chopped
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- salt and pepper
You’ll start by slicing the eggplant into pieces then lightly salting them.
You’ll then combine the oil, vinegar, garlic herbs, salt and pepper. Let it sit to absorb the flavors for about 15 minutes.
Brush eggplant with oil and herb mixture all over, ensuring that the herbs get distributed well. Place on a lightly greased grill and grill for about 15-20 minutes, flipping half way through. Mix with olive oil and garlic. Then let the flavors blend for about 15 minutes.
With that said, you’re ready to eat!
