Grilled Eggplant with Hummus and Tomatoes


  • Author: Gigi & Sersie
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x
  • Diet: Vegan

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 eggplant
  • 1 cup Oil-Free Hummus
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cups mini or quartered bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 Tbsp pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 tsp Za'tar seasoning (optional)

Instructions

Grilling

Preheat a grill and grill pan over high heat.

Slice the eggplant lengthwise into four thick steaks. Add eggplant steaks directly onto the grill. Carefully add cherry tomatoes and bell peppers into the grill pan (so they don’t fall through the grates). Cover and reduce heat to low. Let the veggies cook on low heat for 4 to 5 minutes. Flip the eggplant steaks and carefully toss cherry tomatoes using tongs and cook for another 3 minutes or until slightly browned.  

Oven Roasting

Preheat oven to 425° F (or 218° C).

Slice eggplant lengthwise into four thick steaks. Spread eggplant steaks, cherry tomatoes, and bell pepper on a parchment-lined or silicone-line baking sheet. Roast veggies for 20 minutes or until slightly browned, turning midway through.

Assemble

Remove eggplant, cherry tomatoes, and bell pepper from the grill or oven. Spreading 2 to 3 tablespoons of oil-free hummus onto each eggplant steak. Top with cherry tomatoes and bell pepper, fresh parsley, and pumpkin seeds.

Optional add-ons: a pinch of Za'atar seasoning.

Leftovers keep well, separated in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
