  3. Put the eggplant on its side and make cuts across the length of the eggplant.
  4. Then turn the eggplant and make perpendicular cuts. Don't cut all the way through. You want cubes of eggplant attached at the bottom.
  5. Transfer the eggplants to two separate pieces of foil.

I think I would omit the cilantro in favor of basil or Italian seasoning. I love cilantro, but I'm the only one in my family who does. Julia Child didn't even like it!
