Spicy Grilled Eggplant

I find that people either love or hate eggplant.  I didn't even try it until I was in my 30s.   Mostly I eat it breaded and baked, but this Spicy Grilled Eggplant from Taste of Home caught my eye a while back so I gave it a try.  Super simple, only a few ingredients. I had Cajun seasoning on hand, but if you don't, you can definitely make a homemade version.

If you don't have a grill, this can definitely be done inside on a grill pan or panini press. Don't like eggplant?  It would be awesome with zucchini or summer squash too.  Thanks so much to Greg F. for this delicious recipe!

On Tuesdays, I like to share what my fellow Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editors are making.  This week, Angela's serving up Easy Grilled Corn with Chipotle Lime Butter.  Guess I'm headed back to the farm for some corn!

    1. This spicy eggplant sounds great! We are always getting TONS of eggplant from my in-law's in the summer from their garden.

      1. That's awesome! I'm hoping to pick some more up from the farm stand today. :)
