Big Flavors From a Small Kitchen by Chris Honor and Laura Washburn Hutton ($29.99, Mitchell Beazley) was released March 1, and despite the growing stacks of newer cookbooks on my desk and in my dining room, it is one I find myself reaching for again and again.

This little gem combines my love of grilling with my endless search for new summer vegetarian entrees. It turns out that eggplant parmigiana, that staple of Italian cuisine, is a wonderful candidate for the grill, cooking up quickly and cleanly. And -- bonus! -- grilling this dish not only requires less oil than the traditional recipe, it ends up imparting a smokiness it could never claim before.
