I love to cook, I love to eat, I love all things purple and I just happen to be vegan!
The weather is starting to warm up outside and warm weather brings opportunity to BARBECUE!! During my first year of being a vegan I was always the outsider who brought containers of food with them to eat. I would be the person sitting in the corner eating a bowl of fruit or a leafy green salad. After a few years I wanted to be included in the barbecue festivities and went on the search for vegan recipes that were grill friendly. Today I am going to share a delicious recipe perfect for the grill!!!
Mix with olive oil and with your fresh herbs. Then let the flavors blend for about 15 minutes. The herb mixture will give the delicious flavor to the eggplant.
Grilled Eggplant with Fresh Herbs
Fresh herbs are best with this recipe, but if you don’t have any on hand, you can certainly use their dried counterparts. Just use a pinch of each herb if you’re using dried.
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 cloves minced garlic
¼ cup fresh basil, finely chopped
¼ cup fresh thyme, finely chopped
¼ cup fresh dill, finely chopped
¼ cup fresh oregano, finely chopped
Salt and pepper
How to Make It:
1. Cut the eggplant into slices and salt them lightly. Let them sit for about 15 minutes, so the salt can bring out the moisture of the pieces. Wipe them dry with a bit of paper towel.
2. Meanwhile, combine the oil, vinegar, garlic herbs, salt and pepper. Let site to absorb the flavors for about 15 minutes.
3. Brush eggplant with oil and herb mixture all over, ensuring that the herbs get distributed well.
4. Place on a lightly greased grill and grill for about 15-20 minutes, flipping half way through.
