Ingredients Nutrition

  • 18 cup hoisin sauce
  • 12 tablespoon oil (I use canola)
  • 2 baby eggplants, halved lengthwise
  • salt, to season
  • 12 tablespoon oil, to grill (I use canola)


  1. Slice a bit off the skin side of the eggplant so they lie flat, and score both sides in a criss-cross pattern.
  2. Heat your grill to medium.
  3. Combine hoisin and oil, and whisk vigorously, set aside.
  4. Brush both sides of your eggplant halves with 1/2 tablespoon oil, and season with salt.
  5. Grilled until charred and tender, approximately 5-7 minutes.
  6. With a brush, generously coat both sides of eggplant with the reserved hoisin/oil mixture.
  7. Return eggplant to grill and allow to glaze 1 minute per side, no more, as it will burn.
  8. Serve immediately!
  9. ENJOY!
