Pomegranate Molasses Grilled Eggplant

Pomegranate Molasses Grilled Eggplant

The secret to the perfect grilled eggplant is actually the brine. By simply dissolving a little salt in some water and soaking the eggplant first, we make the perfect base for this pomegranate molasses grilled eggplant recipe! I absolutely love this with a mediterranean style meal.



Topping with a little sweet crunch from the pomegranate seeds and some mint really ties this all together. I hope you all love this one as much as I do!
