Low FODMAP grilled eggplant with feta and tomato
Today I have a super tasty recipe for a side dish for you. It is so simple that it is hardly worth it to write a recipe for it, but because it was so good, I wanted to share it anyway.
Since I studied in Turkey, I am crazy about eggplant. It is such a tasty vegetable! Especially when grilled or roasted. In Turkey, they know very well how to prepare tasty recipes with eggplant.
For example baba ganoush or this delicious hunkar begendi. Two recipes that make me very happy! This grilled eggplant with feta and tomato makes a perfect side dish and when the weather is nice you can also make it on the BBQ. Yum! Do you like eggplant as much as I do?Print
