Harissa grilled eggplant is smoky, spicy & slightly sweet. These grilled eggplants are great to serve over rice, quinoa or any other whole grain.


4 Servings

Total time

35 minutes






  • 1 large Globe Eggplant
  • 1 tbsp harissa
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp agave nectar (Use honey for a non-vegan version)
  • 1 garlic clove (finely minced)
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • to taste Salt Pepper
  • 2 tbsp mint (finely chopped)


  1. Chop the eggplant into 1/4" slices either lengthwise or crosswise. I cut lengthwise but it's up to you. Score the flesh side with a sharp knife.
  2. In a small bowl, combine, harissa, olive oil, agave, garlic, cumin and salt & pepper.
  3. Brush the harissa mixture on the eggplant.
  4. Preheat the grill or the grill pan (if cooking indoors).
  5. Lightly grease the grill with cooking spray; place the eggplants on the hot grill and cook covered for about 2 minutes. Change the angle of the slices to get nice grill marks and cook for another minute. Gently flip and cook on the other side for another 2~4 minutes or until the eggplant is cooked through and tender.
  6. Remove from the grill and sprinkle with the chopped mint. Serve over rice or quinoa or any other grain.
