Ingredients for 2 servings:


Prepare the Grilled Eggplant:

  1. Begin by washing the eggplant thoroughly and slicing it into 0.5-inch thick rounds.
  2. Sprinkle a pinch of salt over the eggplant slices and let them sit for about 15 minutes. This helps draw out excess moisture and enhances the flavor.
  3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  4. Pat the eggplant slices dry with a paper towel to remove any excess salt and moisture.
  5. Brush both sides of the eggplant slices lightly with our Garlic Flavored Olive Oil
  6. Grill the eggplant slices for about 2-3 minutes per side, or until they have distinct grill marks and are tender. Remove them from the grill and set aside.

Prepare the Cherry Tomatoes:

  1. In a pan, heat a small amount of your chosen olive oil (Basil Infused, Garlic Infused, or Classic Blend) over medium heat.
  2. Add the washed cherry tomatoes to the pan and sauté them for a few minutes, gently moving them around until they start to soften and release their juices.
  3. Season the cherry tomatoes with a pinch of salt to taste. Once they're softened and slightly caramelized, remove them from the heat and set them aside.

Assemble the Grilled Eggplant Caprese:

  1. On a serving platter, create layers by alternating slices of grilled eggplant and Mozzarella cheese.
  2. Drizzle our Garlic Infused Olive Oil generously over the eggplant and mozzarella cheese layers. You can add our Basil Flavored Olive Oil to add extra garlic flavor or our Classic Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil, depending on your preference.
  3. Season the dish with a pinch of salt and a dash of freshly ground black pepper for added flavor.
  4. Top the dish with the seared cherry tomatoes, distributing them evenly to add a burst of freshness and color.
