Grilled Eggplant with Basil Oil
Why This Recipe Works
Our biggest challenge when developing a grilled eggplant recipe was dealing with the vegetable’s excess moisture. Salting is usually the answer, but fortunately, the high heat of the grill evaporates the liquid and allows for excellent browning. Don’t make the mistake of salting and resting your eggplant before grilling. The size of the slices also matters in our grilled eggplant recipe. We found that ¾-inch rounds were perfect for grilling and didn’t fall apart on the grates.
