Grilled Eggplant with Balsamic Honey (Agave Nectar) Syrup

Grilling Season is finally HERE in the snow belt! Many people ask me what I eat on a normal basis but when it comes to grilling they are REALLY interested! So, here's my first Vegetarian Grilling Post...Hubby and I are going to try and do more grilling this year so I will post my veg*n grilling adventures here as well. Unfortunately, I didn't take a picture, but the meal was wonderful! Tonight I had Grilled Eggplant with Balsamic Agave Nectar Syrup. I got the idea from Veggie Venture.

Why Agave Nectar? Or are you asking what IS Agave Nectar? Well, here are your answers! Agave Nectar is a vegan alternative to honey. You can learn more about Agave Nectar HERE.

Agave Nectar is approved by the Diabetic Association as well. The Glycemic Index and Glycemic Load is lower than other sweeteners.

But you could use Honey if you aren't vegan, diabetic, or as concerned about those sort of things.

Anyhow, the flavor consisted of Olive Oil, Minced Garlic, Balsamic Vinegar, and Agave Nectar. It was grill for about 15 minutes and it was the BEST Eggplant I have ever had!!! YUM!
