Grilled Eggplant Stacks with Basil Chiffonade

Eggplant is like a sponge when it comes to soaking up the marvelous flavors of foods it is paired with. Purple eggplant will make the prettiest dish, but white or golden eggplant will work as well.

Directions

  1. Brush eggplant slices with 2 tablespoons of the Basil-Infused Olive Oil. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper.
  2. For a charcoal grill, grill eggplant slices on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-high coals for 8 to 10 minutes or until very tender and lightly charred, turning frequently. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium-high. Place eggplant slices on grill rack directly over heat. Cover and grill as directed.)
  3. In a food processor or blender combine cannellini beans, feta cheese, lemon peel, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of the Basil-infused Olive Oil, and the garlic. Cover and process or blend just until combined but still chunky. Season with salt and black pepper.
  4. Arrange eggplant slices on serving plates. Top with bean mixture and roasted pepper strips. Drizzle with the remaining 1 tablespoon Basil-Infused Olive Oil. For basil chiffonade, roll up basil leaves and cut across the roll; sprinkle over eggplant stacks.
