grilled eggplant

Marinated Grilled Eggplant

Summer time is officially here and it is time to get that BBQ out!  I love the BBQ because it makes cooking so easy because there are no pans to wash.  Now, I realize not everyone likes eggplant, but just give it a try or just use a different vegetable.


2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

1 tbsp. olive oil

1 garlic clove, minced

1 medium eggplant

cherry tomatoes

parmesan cheese, shredded

black olives

fresh basil

salt or pepper if desired


  1. Preheat grill
  2. Mix balsamic vinegar, olive oil and garlic together
  3. Cut eggplant into 1/2 inch slices
  4. Marinate for 1 hour
  5. Place on grill, grille each side for about 4 min or until lightly brown
  6. Top with cut up cherry tomato, olives and basil. Eat alone or pair with a piece of grilled chicken and a sweet potato and there is your healthy dinner
  7. Enjoy!
