Grilled eggplant is a healthy alternative to some of the food we normally barbecue, but it can be just as delicious. Just ask Grill Master Randy, whose grilled eggplant recipe can really come in handy as we approach an expected meat shortage due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This grilled veggie recipe comes together in less than half an hour and uses only a handful of basic ingredients, making it a perfect replacement dish in the event you can’t get your hands on some meat for this weekend’s grill session. To be clear, we think BBQ eggplant is worth trying in ordinary times, too! The spicy garlic sauce really shines through and elevates the eggplant to another level, especially if you combine it with smoky flavors like Randy did on his Blaze kamado. Whether you’re looking for a grilled vegetarian recipe in uncertain times or just want to try something new, this eggplant recipe won’t let you down.
