Grilled Eggplant with Caprese Salad


1 Eggplant
Olive oil
Freshly ground pepper
Cherry tomatoes
Fresh basil
Balsamic vinegar

Cut the eggplant sideways into max 0.4 in. / 1 cm. thick slices. Add salt and let it dry out a little. Dry it off with a napkin and drizzle oil on top, then add salt and pepper and grill it. Take it out to serve and add cherry tomatoes, mozzarella and basil, and drizzle a little balsamic vinegar on top.

Grilled Pineapple Rings with Honey and Cinnamon

1 pineapple
1 tbsp. honey
1 tsp. butter or ghee
1 tsp. high quality cognac
Pinch of ground cinnamon

Peel the pineapple, wash it and let it dry. Cut it into slices about half-an-inch wide (1,5 centimeters). Cut out the hard core of each slice.

Melt butter on a pan and add a tablespoon of honey to it. Put the pan off heat, add a pinch of ground cinnamon to the butter-honey mixture and stir. Spread the resulting mixture on all the prepared pineapple rings. If you like, you can now drip a bit of cognac on them as well. Leave the pineapple rings lie still for an hour.

Then heat up the grill. Spread out the pineapple rings on the grill so that they don’t touch. Grill for five minutes on each side and you’re done. For decoration, you can add fresh honey and cinnamon, or arrange lemon balm leaves neatly around the rings.
