Grilled Eggplant Steaks with feta & olive salad
It might be back-to-school time but the summer isn’t gone yet so get those grills going with one of my all time favorite summer ingredients: eggplant! The meaty texture holds up well with grilling but also allows it to really soak up whatever flavors you give it. In this recipe I used garlic oil for just that reason! The eggplant absorbs all that fantastic garlic flavor so on it’s own it’s rich and flavorful but then topping it with a Mediterranean inspired salad makes this side dish into a star.
The recipe is available exclusively in my e-cookbook Summer Fresh. The book is filled with 25 unique recipes (and a few bonuses) that are easy, healthy, and vegetarian (and gluten free!). Please consider supporting my blog and check it out! I promise if you like my blog will love these recipes. :)

Succede a volte che non riusciamo a prendere delle decisioni.
Succede forse perché siamo codardi.
Succede anche perché non vediamo le cose con razionalità.

Questa volta però non riesco a fare la mia scelta per paura delle conseguenze. Per paura di scoprire cose che mi potrebbero fare davvero male. Paura di aver buttato via così tanto tempo per qualcuno che non meritava Niente.
