Ah, the timeless tradition of the great Aussie BBQ! Whether it is to celebrate a birthday, a wedding, a footy game or for no particular reason at all, the BBQ is part of the quintessential Aussie lifestyle.
Aside from the usual BBQ foods such as steak, snags, onion and chicken kebabs – have you considered grilled eggplant as part of your family feast? When marinated with Chris’ Famous Balsamic Dressing this makes for a wonderful addition to any winter BBQ.
Eggplant, Chris’s famous Balsamic dressing, salt, olive oil
- Slice the eggplant in 1cm slices.
- Marinate slices with salt, oil and a generous drizzle of Chris’s Balsamic (both sides)
- Stack the slices and let marinade in the fridge for 30min.
- grill slices on the BBQ 5min on first side and 2min on the other.
The balsamic dressing makes this dish, it will caramelise as it cooks.
You might also like to add a little cumin to give it a Moroccan flavour.
This recipe also works beautifully with zucchini and butternut pumpkin.
