This fresher take on eggplant Parmesan cuts out the breading and amps up the flavor by cooking everything over coals. Thick eggplant slices are seasoned and grilled, then topped with mozzarella cheese, tomato slices, and grated Parmesan. The topped slices then grill until the cheese gets melty and bubbly and the tomato slices become tender and juicy. It’s a great way to satisfy cravings for eggplant Parm in a lighter way that also keeps your kitchen nice and cool.
