I've been grilling a lot of veggies lately, and one of them is eggplants. I slice them, rub the slices on both sides with olive oil, then S&P and grill. It's delicious but BOY how much olive oil those babies can swallow is a scary thought.
Two things I started doing which help a little bit:
1) Cut thicker slices (about 1" thick).
2) Pour a bit of oil on ONE slice and rub to spread right away. Move on to the next slice. (if I pour oil on all slices and then start rubbing to spread, by the time I reach the second slice all the oil has been absorbed and there's nothing left to spread so I have to pour more oil)
What's your experience with grilling eggplants? Any tips?
