For years I had been Char-grilling eggplant (Aubergine) with great results before I found that it was the “norm” to salt the eggplant before cooking it. And whilst I have tasted the pre-salted version I have still never salted my eggplant. And quite frankly, I cannot tell the difference…
There are so many great uses for salt that I do not see the point in increasing your salt intake on something that already tastes amazing?!
I quite often whip – if whip means you can also write a blog or crochet a hat while cooking… – this up when friends come over for a BBQ, it’s great with a cheese plate or to sate vegetarian whilst everyone else is enjoying meat. The eggplant can of course be done right on the BBQ just make sure it’s cut a bit thicker so it doesn’t break up on the hot plates.
And of course, Enjoy!!
