Here, the sesame oil and charcoal turn garden-variety romaine, eggplants, and tomatoes into a robust vegetable trio.
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.
