When I had a BBQ at my disposal, I used to love marinating slices of eggplant in olive oil and balsamic vinegar and grilling it. Some of my friends would make it into baba ganoush - there is nothing like homemade baba ganoush. My mom makes an eggplant caponata that is amazing. And of course, there's always eggplant parmesan. Eggplant is just so versatile.
I will also mention that when I was in Scotland with some dear friends, there was an Indian restaurant below our flat that made the most amazing eggplant recipe... I only wish I could remember the name or find the recipe, because it was a taste of heaven on a fork... I'm not kidding... absolute heaven.
Now... with all those wonderful ideas running around my mind, I bought 2 aubergines to take home and cook. After a couple days of not being able to make up my mind about what I would turn these beautiful purple nightshades into, I finally decided to make up my own recipe. So I give you The Lazy Wife's Grilled Eggplant Lasagna.
Normally, I have more pictures, but I wasn't really sure the recipe would turn out that great, so I didn't take pictures till I had the whole thing assembled. Oh well.
