This Grilled Eggplant & Zucchini Parmesan is one of the best ways to spice up a side! Between the pleasing appearance and the taste, it will leave your guests blown away!


1 large Eggplant

1 large Zucchini

1/2 tsp Roasted Garlic Sea Salt

1/2 tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper

3 oz fresh Mozzarella thinly sliced

1 1/2 cups Pasta Sauce

10 large Basil Leaves chiffonade


  1. Preheat the grill to 350 degrees.

  2. Cut the eggplant into 1/2 inch slices. Cut the zucchini in half crosswise. Cut each half into 1/4 inch slices.

  3. Lay the eggplant and zucchini slices on a baking sheet. Brush on both sides with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

  4. Transfer to grill and grill until the vegetables are tender, but not overcooked, about 4 minutes per side for the eggplant and 3 minutes per side for the zucchini.

  5. In the last 30 seconds of cooking, divide the mozzarella evenly and top the eggplant rounds. Re-close the barbecue lid and cook for additional 30 seconds, or until the mozzarella is melted onto the eggplant.

  6. Lay one eggplant round on a large platter. Top with 1 tsp tomato sauce. Next, add a pinch of basil, then add a slice of zucchini.

  7. Continue stacking in this order, ending with an eggplant round and tomato sauce. Spoon any remaining tomato sauce on top of the assembly.

  8. Serve immediately.
