Eggplant SkewersGrilled Sicilian Eggplant Rolls

Serves: 6
Serving Size: 1 roll


  • 2 teaspoons of olive oil, divided
  • 1 eggplant, sliced lengthwise into 1/4-inch strips
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup Panko or white breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 6 bamboo skewers, soaked in water overnight
  • Vegetable oil spray


Place a teaspoon of olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the slices of eggplant in a single layer and cover the pan. Let the eggplant cook, covered, until it gets soft. You may need to turn the slices occasionally.

Meanwhile, in a second skillet, sauté the garlic and breadcrumbs in the other teaspoon of olive oil until lightly browned. Remove the mixture from heat and stir in the Parmesan cheese.

Sprinkle a little of the breadcrumb mixture on each slice of eggplant.

Roll the eggplant into compact cylinders, securing each with a long bamboo skewer (as pictured).

Place skewers on a piece of foil and transfer to a preheated grill. Grill on foil with a little vegetable oil spray until browned on both sides.

Serve warm.
