Marinated Grilled Eggplant [recipe]

My new favorite summer recipe.

Ingredients:
1 Eggplant
grapeseed oil
white wine vinegar
ketchup (I love Heinz Balsamic or fancy organic spicy ketchup)
garlic clove
pepper
large Ziploc bag

Steps:
1) Cut the ends off the eggplant and discard.  Slice the eggplant into 1/2 in. rounds.  Try to keep them somewhat even.

2) Put the rounds into the plastic bag.

3) Add enough oil, vinegar and ketchup to coat the eggplant.  Using a garlic press add the garlic clove.  Add pepper to taste.

4) Let the eggplant sit in the marinade 15 minutes or longer.

5) Grill the eggplant until soft.  I use a George Forman grill.  It takes about 10 minutes.

I love to serve these with a Dr. Preager’s Veggie Burger on top, no bun.  It would be a great substitute for a hamburger.  I also love this same recipe for large portabello mushrooms.
