Tuesdays are always “Teaser Tuesdays” at Alf Hana. We try out other people’s recipes and share our impressions and recommendations with you.
Oh, tonight we had an Italian feast!!!! I can still smell its spices in the air….
Having bought some beautiful purple eggplants (or aubergines), we decided to try out a new recipe and share it with you all. So, here is our deliciously flavored grilled eggplant:
Doesn’t it look amazing? The recipe (find it here) is really easy! Just mix the spices and oil into a sauce…
…Brush onto both sides of your sliced eggplant. (We suggest making your slices a bit thick…)
Then, grill for about 15 minutes (turning once). Now, we have a very small grill – only big enough for about 2 slices at once. So, you may need to grill these in batches. But, we also tried putting some in the oven at the highest setting for the same amount of time. It worked just as well, but didn’t get those brown stripes – no biggy – they still tasted delicious!
We did make one small change to the recipe. Instead of using 3 tablespoons of oil, we only used 2. At 220 calories for half the recipe, you can’t beat it!
So, check out the original recipe here and let us know what YOU think.
