Lightly spray grill tray or BBQ with olive oil spray and cook skewers for @ 8 - 10 mins, or until eggplant is tender. Turn occasionally. Remove when cooked, sprinkle with the salt and reserved rosemary leaves.

    WONDERFUL! Our first try of eggplant, and so easy to make! You will surely need more than one portion, though. - 8/24/09

    This was great! So flavorful & hearty my husband didn't even comment about there being no meat on his plate! I alternated the eggplant & mushrooms evenly and my one eggplant made 4, foot long rosemary skewers. We each had 1 served with a side salad and w/wheat fettucini tossed in a light puttanesca - 1/31/09

    This was very nice. I thought the amount would make an elegant starter, I would need a little more for a dinner. - 8/10/08

    I rinse herbs to keep the risk of botulism down, and wondered if rinsing these stalks would be enough. They do heat up, I'm sure, but is it enough, or is there a risk. The recepe sounds absolutely delish. I used to throw rosemary stalks on the grill over the coals and it flavored the chicken. - 8/18/10

  • Added rosemary to marinade, used regular skewers, left out salt (sodium restricted), used canola oil instead of olive oil (my preference), used basalmic vinegar spritzer and it was wonderful. - 8/18/10
