For the eggplant:
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon chopped, fresh basil
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper

Cooking Instructions
For the eggplant:
1. Preheat the grill.

2. Mix the olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper and 1/2 of the basil together. Slice the eggplants lengthwise into 1/2" slices. Brush the slices on both sides with the olive oil mixture.
