How to make Grilled Eggplant With Tahini & Yogurt Dip Recipe
To begin making the Grilled Eggplant in Tahini & Yogurt Recipe, we will first have to roast the eggplants. I personally like to roast it on the pan, but you can roast them in the oven too.
First, slice the eggplant lengthwise into 1/4-inch thick slices, sprinkle some salt and drizzle some olive oil over the eggplants and toss them well until well coated.
Arrange the eggplants on a baking tray and loosely cover the tray with foil and roast the eggplants in the preheated oven roast until they are soft and pliable, about 15 to 20 minutes, turning them halfway through while it is roasting.
Preheat a skillet on medium heat; place the eggplant slices on the cast iron skillet and roast them until soft and cooked on both sides. Proceed the same way to roast the remaining eggplants.
Now, we will use only the eggplant that have the largest rounds, as we will be able to stuff and roll only the larger rounds. The smaller rounds you can chop them fine and use them as you wish.
Once grilled place the eggplants on a serving platter. Arrange the eggplants, flat on the surface. Spread a spoon of Tahini on each of the grilled eggplants. Place the sun-dried tomatoes over the eggplant, next spoon the greek dip and finally drizzle the pomegranate sauce. Garnish with mint leaves or thyme leaves and serve.
Serve the Grilled Eggplant with Tahini & Yogurt Dip as an appetizer for parties or as a side dish for dinner.
