Ingredients
  

  • 1 tbsp mashed ginger
  • 2 tbsp mashed garlic
  • 1/2 tbsp pepper powder
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 1/2 cup minced parsley
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 5 medium-sized eggplants or 2 large eggplants

Instructions
 

  • Cut eggplants into 1/4 inch thick slices. Brine if you are using large-sized eggplants. If you are using medium-sized eggplants, quickly paint olive oil on both the sides of slices to prevent them from turning black.
  • Take a large bowl, pour in the olive oil. Add mashed garlic & ginger, pepper powder, oregano, minced parsley, and stir it until mixed.
  • Place each of the eggplant slices in the bowl, flipping them over to ensure both sides are covered in the mixture.
  • Grill for approximately 6 minutes per side until golden in colour with grill marks. If the eggplant slices become dry and stick to the grill, brush them with more oil. 
  • Once the eggplant slices are tender and cooked, remove from the grill and return back to oil, herb and garlic mixture in the pan.
  • Flip once so that both sides are coated before transferring to a serving platter. Spoon any of the excess herbs & garlic over top before serving. The eggplant can be enjoyed hot or at room temperature and will last for up to 4 days in the fridge. 
  • Enjoy!
