Italian Herb Balsamic Marinated & Grilled Eggplant



  • In the bowl of a food processor or blender add the oil, vinegar, parsley, salt, and pepper. Pulse to finely chop the parsley. Pour into a bowl and reserve.
  • Preheat an outdoor charcoal or gas grill or a grill pan until smoking hot.
  • Brush the eggplant slices on each side with olive oil and then arrange the slices on the grill to cover it without crowding. Cook the eggplant until well marked, 3 to 6 minutes, then turn the slices over.
  • Cook until tender, about 3 minutes more.
  • Pour the marinade into a shallow dish and dip the hot slices into the marinade and set it aside on a plate.
  • Continue grilling and dipping the eggplant until all the slices are cooked and seasoned.
  • Spoon the rest of the marinade over the cooked eggplant and then cover the dish with plastic wrap and set aside to marinate at room temperature for about 2 hours (or refrigerate for longer).
  • Serve at room temperature.
