    Grilled Eggplant with Pomegranate-Yogurt Sauce

    What this recipe lacks in meat, it makes up for in fiber, antioxidants, Vitamin C… and flavor! Fire up the grill and try this sweet Mediterranean dish tonight.

     

    INGREDIENTS

     

    • 2 medium eggplants
    •  1 pomegranate
    •  ½ cup plain low-fat yogurt
    •  1 tbsp. lemon juice
    •  1 clove garlic, minced
    •  ¼ cup fresh cilantro
    •  Salt and pepper, to taste

     

    DIRECTIONS

    1. Slice the eggplants lengthwise about 1 inch thick. Brush them with olive oil and sprinkle with pepper.

    2. Heat the grill to medium-high and grill the slices for about 3-4 minutes per side, allowing them to get golden brown with grill marks. Set aside. 

    3. To make the yogurt sauce, combine yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, 1 tbsp. cilantro, salt and pepper in a bowl. Stir together gently.

    4. To serve, top the eggplant slices with a dollop of yogurt sauce, then sprinkle with remaining cilantro and pomegranate seeds.
