Grilled Vegetables with Feta Cheese

Grilled Vegetables with Feta Cheese: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 12
This vegetarian variation on moussaka (a traditional Greek dish with layers of eggplant and lamb) makes excellent use of leftover grilled vegetables.

Ingredients

  • 4 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 medium eggplant (about 1 pound), halved lengthwise
  • 2 red bell peppers, halved and seeded
  • 4 scallions, ends trimmed and halved
  • 1 zucchini, halved lengthwise
  • 1 yellow squash, halved lengthwise
  • 1 cup fresh green beans, ends trimmed
  • 1 large Spanish onion, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp dried thyme leaves
  • 2 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 28-ounce can whole tomatoes, drained and diced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

Directions

  • Preheat an outdoor grill or stove-top grill pan.
  • In a large bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of the oil, the eggplant, red peppers, scallions, zucchini, yellow squash, and green beans and toss to coat the vegetables.
  • Place the vegetables on the grill and cook for 4 minutes, until tender crisp and slightly charred with grill marks on all sides. Remove from the grill and when cool enough to handle, cut into 1-inch pieces; set aside.
  • Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in a large stockpot over medium heat.
  • Add the onion, celery, and garlic and sweat for 4 minutes, until tender.
  • Add the thyme, oregano, bay leaves, salt, cinnamon, and pepper and stir to coat the vegetables.
  • Add the stock and tomatoes and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat, partially cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Add the grilled vegetables and simmer 2 minutes.
  • To serve, remove the bay leaves, ladle the soup into bowls, and top with the feta cheese.
