What Can I Serve With Ninja Foodi Grill Cajun Eggplant?

They are best served warm as a side meal. When they are cold, they are great on salads. Also, the grilled eggplant slices can be used on sandwiches, hamburgers, and even bruschetta.

For extra taste, top them with some cheese, such as Parmigiano, or feta cheese, or sprinkle some balsamic over them. They are yummy either way.

Recipe Tips

  1. If you have leftover grilled eggplant, use it in salads, on burgers, or sandwiches the next day. Remember to put them in the fridge, and suitably cover them. They will last for about 4 days in the fridge.
  2. To grill it on an electric stove, simply follow the same steps above. The cooking time should be about the same, around 4-5 minutes for each side.
  3. For extra flavor, top them with some herbs and minced garlic.
  4. It is important to slice them uniformly, about 1/2 to 1/3 inch thick, so they can cook evenly.
