I know it sounds a little weird coming from a person who grills rather regularly, but there a lot of times that I want something that is on the lighter side – still grilled mind you – but meatless. I served this the other night for dinner with a couple carnivore friends and everyone left the table completely satisfied.
The stand out of this dish is the grilled halloumi cheese which hails from Greece. Halloumi has a high melt-point and is great for grilling, frying, or searing. Brushed with a little oil, it can be paced directly on the grill grates for about 45 seconds, flip and grill another 30 seconds and you have a soft, melty, deliciousness with a hint of char flavor.
The grilled eggplant only takes about 3 to 4 minutes per side, brushed with a rosemary and garlic olive oil. To bring home the Mediterranean flavors the seemed to be going on, I made a simple salad of sliced olives and and crumbled feta to top it off.
If you simply cannot entertain the idea of a meatless-Monday dinner, a quickly grilled chicken cutlet or whitefish fillet would be delicious as well.
