Eggplant on the grill?

Has anyone grilled eggplant before, and how was it?

I did not do it myself, but, have eaten it at a friends house. It is wonderful!! I know someone on here has done it also.

Here it is, I knew it wasn't too long ago that I saw it.

Certain veggies like eggplant, asparagus, zucchini, squash are A-W-E-S-O-M-E grilled.

Cut a regular eggplant into thick(1/2" or so) circles. Brush on some EVOO, salt, pepper and that's it.

Don't leave them on too long or they will get too mushy.

As mentioned above, Ill grill a bunch of eggplant, zucchini, asparagus, along with tomatoes, onions and mushrooms. Dice them up, toss them in a bowl with cooked pasta ( like a rigatoni, penne.... , with garlic, olive oil, salt , pepper . Add a few fresh herbs from the garden ( basil, parsley..) mix it all up, and its a great grilled pasta dish

What Jeekins said.
Sometimes when I grow too many veggies to use in time I grill 'em and eat them alone for lunch.
Eggplant and summer squash are my faves!
Larry I'll have to try that over pasta... Thanks!

like they all said, yummm lots of ways. in a salad, with pasta, as a side.

and when grilling season is over, I roast them in the oven.

(I grill tomatoes too, a natural with other grilled veg. Cut in half evoo and seasonings. grill cut side down first for just a min or two, then flip and steady them and give them a good warm through. If the skin chars too much for your liking, squeeze it off.)

Yeah, the grilled veggies mixed with the pasta is great, because the pasta takes on that grilled flavor

I have done grilled eggplant before and it is really good. My DH love them grilled. I just cook 'em and he'd demolish a whole plate.

We grilled some eggplant and the white zucchini's and they were great..I sprayed some foil with pam then put in the eggplant, added a good measure of evoo, sprinkled it with some grey salt that had garlic and sundried tomatoes in it, gave it a few grinds of black pepper and then added some slices of red onion..closed it up and put it on the grill, did the same with the white zucchini ..MY grandkids devoured the veggies like there was no tomorrow.. I just wish I'd done extras for today...
