Bring the fresh taste of the Mediterranean to your dinner table with this stacked eggplant and tomato loaded with feta cheese. Eggplant slices are brushed with a lemon-herb mixture, grilled and then topped with juicy tomatoes and salty feta. Eggplant doesn't need to cook very long on the grill so be sure to keep a close eye on it and remove it when it begins to get charred grill marks. Great hot or at room temperature and served either as a main dish or a side. It also makes a great, healthy appetizer. Change the flavor profile of this recipe by using diced mozzarella instead of feta and red wine vinegar instead of lemon juice.

Ingredients

fresh lemon juice

1 Tbsp

olive oil

1 Tbsp, extra virgin

fresh oregano

1 Tbsp, leaves (plus more for garnish)

minced garlic

¼ tsp, very finely minced

kosher salt

¾ tsp, divided (or to taste)

black pepper

tsp, freshly ground (or to taste)

uncooked eggplant(s)

1 large, trimmed, sliced into twelve 1/2-in rounds

cooking spray

2 spray(s)

fresh tomato(es)

2 large, ends trimmed, cut into six slices each

crumbled feta cheese

¾ cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine lemon juice, oil, oregano, garlic and 1/4 teaspoon salt; set aside for flavors to blend.
  3. Coat eggplant with cooking spray; sprinkle with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper.
  4. Grill eggplant until lightly charred and tender, turning as needed, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Flip eggplant over and brush with lemon mixture; top each with 1 slice tomato and 1 tablespoon feta. Cover grill and cook until tomato and feta soften slightly, about 1 minute.
  6. Remove to a serving platter and garnish with addition oregano leaves, if desired. Yields 1 eggplant stack per serving.
