Eggplant is wonderfully versatile and it can be used in so many ways and so many recipes. It absorbs the flavor of the herbs and spices accompanying it. These marinated eggplants are a perfect side dish or a healthy snack.
1 large eggplant, peeled and cut into 1-cm rounds
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp dry oregano or basil or mint
a pinch of black pepper
2 tsp salt
1/2 cup good wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
a pinch of chili powder
1. Grill the eggplant rounds on both sides until golden brown.
2. Put eggplant into a bowl and add all the ingredients. Mix well.
3. Let stand for 4 hours.
4. Put in a jar, pushing down well; if needed, add more oil just to cover eggplants completely. Use the next day.
