Sprinkle the eggplant with the ½ tablespoon fine sea salt and place in a bowl. Set aside for 10 minutes. Preheat the barbecue for direct cooking.

2

Rinse the eggplant well to remove all the salt. Dry the eggplant thoroughly. Put the eggplant, zucchini, and capsicum in a large bowl, mix with 1 tablespoon olive oil, and season salt and pepper. Once the barbecue is preheated, turn all burners to medium.

3

Place the vegetables directly on the grill leaving a small gap between each piece. Close the lid and cook the vegetables for 3 to 5 minutes per side. Remove from the grill.

4

To assemble each stack, lay a piece of eggplant on a plate. Crumble some of the goat cheese on top of the eggplant. Lay a couple of slices of zucchini on top. Crumble some more goat cheese on top of the zucchini. Lay a slice of the capsicum over it. Repeat this process to create the stacks.

5

In a small bowl whisk 1 tablespoon olive oil with the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Add the rocket leaves and toss. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and sprinkle with the toasted pine nuts.
