Grilled Eggplant with Garlic and Walnut Oil

An eggplant came in my veggie box the other day...I really have no idea what to do with an eggplant. So, I decided to wing it. :) That's what I do.

You can never go wrong with garlic and oil, really. So, I sliced my eggplant into 1/2 inch strips and marinated it in some walnut oil and crushed garlic for about 1/2 hour. I, then, grilled the strips for about 5 minutes per side and served with this amazing pesto to which I'm now addicted.

If you've never tried eggplant, give it a try. You may find it's one of your new favorites.

Grilled Eggplant with Garlic and Walnut Oil
1 Eggplant sliced into 1/2 inch strips
1 t crushed garlic
1+ C olive or walnut oil

Mix oil and garlic in a shallow wide dish. Let sit for a few minutes then add strips of eggplant coating both sides. Let eggplant marinate for about 30 minutes. Place eggplant strips on a grill over medium heat. Grill for about 5 minutes per side or until flesh is fairly soft. Serve warm with pesto...or without. :)
