Eggplant slices are ready in two or three minutes on a panini grill. If you don?t use the slices for panini, you can simply top them with tomato sauce, or chop and toss them with pasta or rice. Alternatively, try them drizzled with vinaigrette and sprinkled with feta and such fresh herbs as mint, parsley, basil or marjoram.

Recipe Ingredients for Grilled Eggplant Panini

150 g eggplant
1 tsp Extra virgin olive oil
1/2 red pepper
3 slices tomato
2 tablespoons grated cheese
2 slices french bread

Recipe Directions for Grilled Eggplant Panini

  1. 1. Sprinkle the eggplant slices with salt and let sit for 15 minutes. Pat dry and brush lightly with olive oil.

  2. 2. Preheat a panini grill, and evenly layer the eggplant slices on top. Grill three minutes, until cooked through. Remove from the grill.

  3. 3. Spread a little pesto on the bottom slice of bread. Top with a layer of eggplant slices, then a layer of pepper or tomato slices. Sprinkle with freshly ground pepper. Top with the grated cheese and the other slice of bread. Brush the outside of the bread slices, both bottom and top, with olive oil. Grill five minutes, or until nicely toasted and the cheese has melted. Remove from the grill and cut into halves or thirds, depending on the size of the panini. Serve hot.
