  • 1 medium onion, chopped in small pieces

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. First make the tabbouleh. Place the couscous in a medium bowl.
  2. Add the boiling water and place a lid over the top so the couscous can swell and soften.

  11. You should be able to get 3-4 nice slices from each eggplant.
  12. Heat and oil the grill.
  13. Place the eggplant on the hot, oiled grill and cook until soft.
