If you want to make delicious, slightly unusual side dishes without a lot of work, hobo packs are for you. Just assemble the foil package, slide it into the coals, and let it cook while you make the rest of the meal on top of the grill grid. This combination of eggplant and tomatoes is a classic pairing found throughout the Mediterranean world, and for good reason—the rich eggplant and sweet-tart tomato complement each other perfectly. Add a little garlic, onion, oregano, and hot pepper, and you’ve got a super-tasty side dish that goes with just about any meal. It’s also a delicious vegetarian entree for two.
