Otherwise known as “eggplant”:  Grilled Aubergine and Peppers

Platter of Aubergine and Peppers

We almost always grill vegetables when we fire up the grill for chicken or steak.  Usually it’s peppers and zucchini for us.  And we never seem to remember eggplant.  Have you ever grilled eggplant (also known as aubergine)?  It happens to be pretty wonderful on the grill.  It takes on a smoky flavor that is delicious.

Grilling Aubergine and Peppers

In this recipe, you’ll brush on olive oil and garlic, and then sprinkle some herbs on top too: basil, thyme, oregano, paprika, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.

Then put the veggies on a hot grill until some char marks appear and the eggplant shrivels a bit on the edges.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium aubergines (eggplants), cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 2 large red bell peppers, seeded and cut into long slices lengthwise
  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper flakes
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat the grill to hot. In a small bowl, combine the garlic and olive oil. In a separate bowl, combine the basil, thyme, oregano, paprika & red pepper flakes.
  • Lay out slices of eggplant and peppers on a large cutting board. Brush one side with the oil mixture. Sprinkle with the herb mixture. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Grill the vegetables until edges are charred and tender, turning once during grilling to cook both sides (3 to 5 minutes per side). Use a flat grill rack if you’re worried about the vegetables sticking to the grill or falling through the rack and into the fire. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Notes

  • *If making these for a party, grill them ahead of time & wrap them in foil until ready to serve. They’re still great served at room temperature.
