Don't consider yourself a fan of eggplant? Maybe you just haven't had it cooked the right way. Many people don't think of preparing eggplant for a barbecue, but when done right it can be smoky, tender, and tasty, along with being a great low-calorie, high-fiber side dish.


  • 1 eggplant
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp, ground basil, dried
  • 1 tsp, ground oregano
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • 3 tbsp parmesan cheese, grated


  1. Cut the eggplant into slices about 1/2 inch thick.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, minced garlic, basil, oregano, and onion powder.
  3. Brush the sides of the eggplant with this mixture until well coated, then place on the grill.
  4. Cook for 7-8 minutes, then flip the eggplant slices over and sprinkle Parmesan cheese on the cooked side. (You may want to brush a bit more of the oil mixture over it first to give the cheese something to stick to).
  5. Cook for another 7-8 minutes until both sides are done.
