Grilled Eggplant with Crumbled Goat's Cheese

IMG_8175 (800x533)

For some reason everything taste better when it’s grilled. Especially bringing more flavor to vegetables. My hubby isn’t a fan of eggplant, but he really liked this dish. Maybe because it’s simple, yet packed with flavor with the basil, goat cheese and balsamic. I also like how fancy it looks out on a platter so I’ll be serving this at our next dinner party.
