Grilled Eggplant with Garlic & Herbs

Grilled vegetables are my go-to side dish for any summer barbecue. They are simple to prepare incredibly, proceed with about anything just and can be made in advance. While a lot of people grill zucchini, onions and peppers, my absolute favorite veggie to grill is definitely eggplant.
