Grilled eggplant with oregano

This simple way to prepare eggplant is probably my favorite. It is popular all across the Mediterranean. Here I came across seasoning the grilled eggplant with oregano, but you can choose green parsley, basil, thyme.…


3 medium eggplants

Olive oil

4 cloves garlic

2 tsp. chopped fresh oregano

Salt and pepper


Cooking instructions:

Using a sharp knife or a cutting machine slice the eggplant lengthwise. Sprinkle with salt and leave to rest for about an hour. 

After the eggplant releases water, pet dry with a kitchen towel.

Brush olive oil on one side of the eggplant, and place on a preheated grill. Then brush the other side. Cook until nicely browned on each side, for about 10 minutes.

Combine about ½ cup of olive oil with mashed garlic cloves and salt. Arrange grilled eggplant slices on serving plates. Brush with the olive oil and garlic mixture then sprinkle with oregano. Season with freshly ground black pepper. Serve as an appetizer.
