Grilled Eggplant Medallions

After stopping at a local farm stand and picking up some eggplant this past weekend, we got what we think is a neat concept for a series of recipes. Essentially, each sequential recipe can be enjoyed on its own or used as a component to make the next one! We started out with Grilled Eggplant, as that’s the foundation for the other recipes…We then took that as the base for “Rhubaba Ghanoush” before using that second recipe to as a component in Eggplant Chicken Pitas.

If you’re not progressing onto the other recipes, this would be a great side dish for most Grilled Meats…but especially Grilled New York Strip Steak, Greek Steak Kabobs, or if you prefer roasted meat, Mediterranean Roasted Turkey Thigh!

Time: 15 Minutes
