Grilled Aubergine (Eggplant) & Red Onion Side Dish

Hey guys! Thanks so much for the great response to my Mediterranean salad! I’m back and giving you another healthy recipe that I know you will make over and over again!

Yummy side dishes can be healthy and filling! This is a great side dish to go with any meal or even alone as a snack! You can cook this for family or for when you’re entertaining guests; either way, it’s always a hit.

Grilled Aubergine (Or Eggplant as many of you call it) & Red Onion

The amount you make will vary (my measurements are enough for 4 people). If you want to use more, make sure to spread the slices over 2 trays instead of 1.
This dish will take approx. 10-15 minutes to prepare and 25-30 minutes to cook…just enough time for you to cook your main course 😉
Enjoy! xo EF
