Grilled Eggplant with Mozzarella, Tomatoes, and Basil Recipe

SHARE:

The first thing I wanted to grow in my garden was tomatoes and we have! Our neighbors have also been bringing us tomatoes from their farm. If I knew this would happen, I might not have planted my one tomato plant. Then again, it's nice to be able to grow my own produce.

As a family, we've really bonded over the experience: from digging the ground up, to watering daily with our micro-sprinkler system, to watching our tomatoes grow. With a teenager in tow, that says a lot.

Whether you grow your own tomatoes or buy them, this grilled eggplant with mozzarella, tomatoes and basil recipe is a nice change of pace for your grill. Not only that, it's perfect for Meatless Monday.

Grilled Eggplant with Mozzarella, Tomatoes and Basil Recipe

I've always loved eggplant, but I haven't had much luck with crafting recipes on my own. Actually, I've only tried cooking with eggplant once and it was such a disaster that I was too afraid to try cooking with it again. I was looking for something easy that would help me use up all these tomatoes, but something different from the norm.

We've made good use of our grill since we moved in April, but mostly with meats. It was time to show the veggies some love, though eggplant is technically a fruit. Grilled anything is easy for me. I just have one of the guys fire up the grill and tell them what to do!
