This Italian side dish (aka 'contorno') couldn't be easier! We make this often during the summer, when we have an abundance of basil and parsley growing in our garden. Works well with zucchini, too!

  • Brush eggplant lightly with olive oil on both sides. Stir together remaining olive oil, garlic, and salt in a small bowl.

  • Arrange eggplant slices on the preheated grill and cook, turning occasionally, until tender and browned, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

  • Arrange grilled eggplant on a platter. Brush with the olive oil and garlic mixture until eggplant has absorbed the oil. Sprinkle with the chopped basil and parsley and serve.

Tips

Cook's Note:

Can be served warm or at room temperature. Leftovers taste great on a panini.

This is the first time I've grilled eggplant and everything was so easy and really good, too! It took a little more time to grill, but I had the heat set to medium. I will be making this again! Read More
