Grilled fresh veggies and herbs come together for a light spread that doubles as an add-in for grilled fish and chicken dishes. Try adding to pasta with fresh tomatoes and feta! Great served with a sauvignon blanc for warm summer nights.

Instructions Checklist

  • Arrange red bell pepper, eggplant, and onion slices on on the preheated grill; cook until red pepper is charred and eggplant and onion are tender with grill marks, 5 to 7 minutes per side. Place red pepper in a paper bag and close tightly to 'sweat', about 10 minutes; peel the charred skin off the pepper.

  • Blend red bell pepper, eggplant, onion, olive oil, basil, oregano, lemon juice, sea salt, and black pepper in a food processor until smooth and spreadable. Stir in feta cheese.

What's not to love! Great flavor not very pretty though. I served it on pasta topped with additional grilled veggies. Love the feta. Read More

Simple and delicious! I brushed my veggies with EVOO, salt and pepper before grilling them. I also added a clove of fresh garlic to the mix. I subbed cotija cheese for feta because it's what I had on hand, and it's a cheese that's between parmesan and feta so it worked great. Served it with some Pita chips and it was devoured! Healthy too! Read More

I made this exactly as directed, and we loved it! It did cry for some garlic though, so when I knew that I was going to serve this "bruschetta" style, I broiled some sliced bread and rubbed the toasted slices with a raw garlic clove and brushed them with a bit of EVOO! It was perfect, and everyone at dinner last night thoroughly enjoyed this appetizer! Will make this again! Read More
