Category: Appetizers, Vegetarian

 Ingredients List

  • 2 lg Eggplants
  • 1 tb Salt
  • 1 tb Olive oil
  • 1 Juice of lemon
  • 4 tb Freshly chopped mint
  • 1 ts Ground cumin
  • 1 Garlic clove, crushed
  • Black pepper
  • 5 oz Yogurt
  • 4 tb Freshly chopped mint
  • 1/2 ts Ground cumin


Cut eggplants into 1 cm thick slices & layer them in a colander with the
salt. Let them drain for 30 minutes. Wash them under cold water & dry them
on paper towels. Beat together oil, lemon juice, mint, cumin, garlic &
pepper. Beat together, separately, the yogurt, mint & cumin.

Heat the grill to high. Lay the eggplant slices on the hot rack & brush
them with half the lemon mixture. Grill them until they begin to brown.
This will take about 2 minutes. Turn over, brush with the rest of the lemon
mixture & brown.

Serve grilled eggplants hot with the sauce separately as an appetizer. Or
place the eggplant on a large platter & spoon the sauce over the top &
serve as a vegetable accompaniment for middle eastern dishes.
