Easy Summer Lunch: Grilled Eggplant with Tomato Sauce, Basil and Feta Cheese

We’ve been harvesting copious amounts of organic fruit and vegetables this summer and having fresh produce at my fingertips makes it super easy to come up with delicious, healthy and easy lunch recipes. This previous week I made grilled eggplant with tomato sauce, basil and Feta twice and it’s a delightfully simple as well as light dish that is incredibly tasty due to grilled vegetables.

    Not only does it look great, it makes me want to try them and I’ll have you know that my stomach doesn’t handle eggplant well. Especially if its fried so I guess this recipe is worth trying out. 😉
