Charred Eggplant – Yes Please!

Chargrilled Eggplant
Charred Eggplant by @Lauren_Caris

Charr Grilled eggplant is a great idea for a side dish in lieu of the normal starch side.  Not only is it savory and delicious; it’s also gorgeous gorgeous and a bit healthier than say, your typical mashed potatoes or pasta side.  Love how the chef dressed it up with some carrot top pesto.  And if you have a vegan or vegetarian in your midst it fits the bill as a great main for them.  For a weeknight, I’d serve it up with some ground turkey sauteed with harissa for an easy dinner.  Yum!  You can find the recipe here at Lauren’s gorgeous website:  Lauren Caris Cooks.
