A quick and fresh appetizer or side dish, these grilled eggplant rolls get some Greek love thanks to an herbed-packed blend of yogurt and feta.
Preparation time: 45 minutes Cooking time: 45 minutes Serves: 8
For the Filling: Whisk together yogurt, feta, lemon juice, oregano, mint, dill, and garlic in a medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
For the Eggplant Rolls: Light one chimney full of charcoal. When all charcoal is lit and covered with gray ash, pour out and spread the coals evenly over entire surface of coal grate. Set cooking grate in place, cover grill and allow to preheat for 5 minutes. Clean and oil the grilling grate. Brush eggplant slices with oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill eggplant until browned on both sides, 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer to a large tray or cutting board and let cool for 3-5 minutes.
Spread a layer of filling over each eggplant slice and top each with a single layer of tomatoes and cucumber. Roll eggplant slices into spirals and serve.
