Grilled Eggplant with Za’atar + Herby Lentil Salad

I think grilled eggplant is by far my favorite! Its been so cold outside I had to bring some summer into our house!! Love low carb recipes like this and had to share :)

Fresh, summery salad that combines soft grilled eggplants and lots of fresh herbs. Cold leftovers make great pita fillings with hummus and extra greens. Serves 4, or more as a side. Vegan + Gluten Free.
You can buy za’atar spice blend in specialty or middle eastern grocery stores,  I made my own because I had to leave the sesame out for Hubby's sake. The recipe below is one that I make here at home, but feel free to play around with the quantities to create a home blend that you love.
Ingredients 4 small eggplants

Olive Oil
1 + tablespoon za’atar (recipe below)
1 cup beluga lentils, (Whole masoor with skin) preferably soaked overnight
1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
Handful of golden raisins
1 cup packed fresh herbs; mint + parsley work well
Juice and zest of one lemon
Black pepper and salt to taste
Za’atar Home Blend
