Here, the sesame oil and charcoal turn garden-variety romaine, eggplants, and tomatoes into an exotic vegetable trio.
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon dry sherry or white wine
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
3 small eggplants, each cut lengthwise into 8 long wedges
3 small heads romaine, cut lengthwise in half
3 plum tomatoes, cut lengthwise in half
How to Make It
Using a whisk, combine the soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, sherry, ginger, and crushed red pepper.
Light a charcoal grill and allow the coals to burn until covered with gray ash or heat a gas grill to medium. Brush the cut sides of the eggplant wedges with the marinade and place on grill. Grill 5 minutes. Brush the romaine and tomatoes and place on grill. Baste the eggplant and turn and cook until all the vegetables are fork-tender, about 10 minutes more.
