Vegetable Recipe Series-Grilled Eggplant

We are starting a series on fresh vegetables recipes. If you don't think kids will eat vegetables, try introducing them to these recipes. Remember it takes 6-10 times of seeing a vegetable before children might try a bite.
See this post on training children's taste buds.

Fresh herbs are best with this recipe, if not available use a pinch of dried herbs.
*** Let kids grow their own fresh herbs in an herb garden or pot in the windowsill.

1 eggplant
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 cloves minced garlic
¼ cup fresh basil, finely chopped
¼ cup fresh thyme, finely chopped
¼ cup fresh dill, finely chopped
¼ cup fresh oregano, finely chopped
Salt and pepper

How to Make It: 
Cut the eggplant into slices and salt them lightly. Let them sit for about 15 minutes, so the salt can bring out the moisture of the pieces. Wipe them dry with a bit of paper towel.

Meanwhile, combine the oil, vinegar, garlic herbs, salt and pepper. Let site to absorb the flavors for about 15 minutes.
herb and oil mixture
Brush eggplant with oil and herb mixture all over, ensuring that the herbs get distributed well. Place on a lightly greased grill and grill for about 15-20 minutes, flipping half way through.
