At RD, we're all about simple. Simple recipes give you tasty food in less time. If it has too many ingredients, it's not for us. Here's an easy recipe that takes minutes to prepare and cook.
1 pint Cherry Tomatoes
1 Eggplant, in large chunks
3 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Tabasco Original Red Sauce
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
1/2 tsp Sugar
3 Tbsp Cilantro, minced
Preheat grill until hot. While the grill is heating, soak wooden skewers to avoid them burning.
In a small bowl whisk together salt, pepper, sugar, cilantro, Tabasco and olive oil.
Place tomatoes and eggplant onto skewers with a small space between them all. Baste the vegetables in the marinade. Place on grill and turn when the egg plant is soft and grill marks are there. Turn over and grill until done.
Remove from grill and serve.
Pair with steak, chicken or seafood. The fresh cilantro pairs well with the sweetness of the tomatoes and the spiciness of the tabasco is offset by the meatiness of the eggplant. Next week, we'll share a great shrimp recipe to go with your spicy veggies.
