Grilled Eggplant

Eggplant is another one of my favourite vegetables to cook. This Grilled Eggplant is addictive and taste great on it’s own or accompanying a meat dish.

I used a mandolin to slice these eggplants today, so I could get a uniform slice.
It is ideal to slice each eggplant and lay the slices in a colander, sprinkle salt on each layer and place a plate down on top and add a lot of weight (eg pile lots of plates or a heavy object) on top for 10 mins to let any bitter juices out of the slices. Then you can use the eggplant straight away.

  1. 2 large eggplants sliced (use as many as you would like)
  2. extra virgin olive oil
  3. 1 tbls oregano
  4. sea salt
  1. Place oil, oregano and salt in a shallow dish you are going to coat the cooked eggplant in this oil and transfer to a container.
  2. Use a grill pan so you can get the pattern as shown.
  3. Place as much eggplant as you can on the pan without overlapping.
  4. My pan has a lid which I used to press the eggplants down.
  5. Wait a couple of minutes until you move their position to make a checked pattern.
  6. Turn around and follow same steps.
  7. Once both sides are cooked coat each side quickly in the oil and place in container you want to store them in.
  8. Voila! enjoy for a few days
