Summer Fest: 5 Takes on Grilled Eggplant

From large, meaty Italian options to delicate and long Japanese varieties, eggplants abound at markets right now. Eggplant can be pureed into dips or sliced into pasta, but I like it straight from the grill.

1. Spicy Hoisin Glazed Eggplant (pictured above)

Bobby Flay puts an Asian spin on sliced eggplant by glazing the slices in a ginger, garlic and red chili flake sauce complete with hoisin, vinegar and soy sauce. Serve with a sprinkling of only cilantro so the wonderful grill marks are displayed.

2. Grilled Eggplant and Goat Cheese Salad

Giada De Laurentiis grills eggplant in just a drizzle of olive oil. Sprinkle your platter of veggies with pine nuts, goat cheese, basil and mint. Drizzle the finished slices with extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper.

3. Grilled Mixed Vegetables
Gabriele Corcos and Debi Mazar make a Tuscan vegetable dish of grilled zucchini, endive and eggplant topped with Acciugate Di Renato, which is a dressing of oil, garlic, anchovies, parsley and capers.

4. Grilled Vegetables
Serve Japanese eggplant alongside bell peppers, yellow squash and zucchini to showcase the best of what’s at the market right now. Once the veggies are arranged on a platter, drizzle them with an herb dressing blend of oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, parsley, basil and rosemary.

5. Grilled Vegetable Salad with Feta and Mint
Ellie Krieger’s lighter take on summer eggplant uses just cooking spray to char eggplant, onion and zucchini on the grill. While the veggies cook, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar and oregano. Pour it over the cooked vegetables and toss before gently stirring in the tomatoes and mint. Sprinkle with the feta for serving.
