Serves 6Grilled Eggplant (grilled-eggplant.jpg)

  • 1 large eggplant or 2 medium ones
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 2  tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1  teaspoon oregano
  • Salt and pepper

Heat the grill. Slice eggplant into rounds about ¾ inch thick. Slice tomatoes into rounds about ¼ inch thick. Lay all the rounds flat and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stir oregano into the olive oil in a small separate bowl, and brush mixture lightly onto the eggplant and tomato rounds.

Grill eggplant and tomato rounds, olive oil side down, tomato slices for about 1 minute each, and  eggplant slices for about 2 minutes each. Remove from the grill and flip so that the oiled sides are up.

Heat the broiler. Lay out eggplant slices on a baking sheet. Top each slice with a slice of tomato. Sprinkle the eggplant-tomato stacks with parmesan cheese and broil until cheese is bubbly, about two minutes.
