Aubergine and courgette tower

Serves: 4
1 courgette
1 aubergine
Olive oil
250g fresh mozzarella
1 sprig of rosemary
Salt and pepper
Recipe preparation

A delicious tower of grilled vegetables and cheese. Ideal as a tasty side dish or mouth-watering main.

In the kitchen:
  • Rinse the courgette and aubergine and cut into 1½ cm slices. Brush each slice with oil. Cut the mozzarella into 1 cm slices.
  • Rinse and chop the rosemary finely.
At the barbecue:
  • Prepare the barbecue for direct heat – approx. 180°C. When using a charcoal barbecue you need 1/3 of a chimney starter of lit Weber briquettes to reach this temperature.
  • Grill the courgette and aubergine slices for 3 min. on each side so they get sear marks. Remove the slices from the barbecue.
  • Layer the grilled slices of courgette and aubergine with the mozzarella: 1 slice of aubergine, 1 slice mozzarella, 1 slice courgette, 1 slice mozzarella and finish off with 1 slice aubergine.
  • Place the vegetable basket containing the small ‘towers’ on the grate and grill for approx. 3-4 min. until the cheese is melted. Sprinkle with fresh rosemary and season with salt and pepper before serving.
