Simply Delicious Italian Grilled Eggplant

by | Apr 7, 2022 | Cooking for Kids | 0 comments

Growing up, my family was always passionate about food. My parents taught me how to appreciate the nuances of flavor and texture from a young age, and I still remember the first time I tried grilled eggplant. It was the perfect balance of smoky, savory, and sweet and I was instantly hooked!

Fast forward to today, and I still make this recipe for my family and friends. With a few simple ingredients and a hot grill, you can whip up this delicious Italian-style grilled eggplant in no time!

To get started, you’ll need:

  • For a smokier flavor, try grilling the eggplant slices over charcoal instead of gas.
  • For a lighter version, use a light olive oil or canola oil instead of regular olive oil.
  • For a vegan option, omit the garlic and replace the olive oil with a vegan-friendly oil.
  • For a more flavorful dish, try adding some diced tomatoes, olives, or feta cheese.
  • For a fresh twist, top the grilled eggplant with a drizzle of balsamic glaze.
