A Delicious Eggplant Recipe

This is my favorite Eggplant recipe inspired by a dish I had at a dear friends house! It's the perfect mixture of salty, tangy, and just plain deliciousness. Eggplant makes an excellent substitute for meat and this is great as a main course served with some rice or hummus.

Cook Time

Prep time: 1 hour
Cook time: 6 min
Ready in: 1 hour 6 min
Yields: 2-3 people


  • 1 Large Eggplant, 1/2 inch slices
  • 3 Cloves Garlic, Diced
  • 1 Tsp Fresh Or Dried Parsley, Chopped
  • To Taste Salt
  • To Taste Pepper
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil
  • 3 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar


  1. Combine all ingredients except for the eggplant in a Tupperware container and mix well.
  2. Slice the eggplant in 1/2 inch thick slices and submerge in marinade mixture
  3. Put lid on Tupperware container and shake vigorously to ensure that the entire eggplant is covered
  4. Wait 30 minutes for the marinade to absorb
  5. Heat up a pan on the stove top and when it's hot place the eggplant directly on the pan. There is no need for additional oil.
  6. Cook until brown on each side approximately 3-5 per side.
  7. Serve with extra marinade or just by itself!
