Ingredients

1 1/2 lb  fresh shiitake mushrooms
1 each  whole eggplant
1 tbsp  sesame oil
1 each  cooking spray

Ginger Dipping Sauce
0 1/4 cup  fresh chopped onion
0 1/2 cup  fresh ginger root
0.3333 cup  chopped apples
0 3/4 cup  low sodium soy sauce
6 tbsp  rice vinegar
1 1/2 tbsp  sesame oil
0 1/4 cup  sugar
Directions
  1. Preheat grill.
  2. Wash 1 1/2 pounds of mushrooms or eggplant or both. Cut off tough stems from mushrooms. Cut eggplant in half crosswise and cut each piece in half lengthwise.
  3. If using eggplant, arrange a rack over 1 inch of water in a 6- to 8-quart pot. Lay eggplant on rack, boil over high heat, cover, and steam eggplant until soft, about 5 minutes. Let rest until cool enough to handle.
  4. Skewer two or three mushrooms (horizontally through cap) or one piece eggplant onto each soaked 12-inch wood kabob sticks. Coat vegetables evenly with sesame or vegetable oil.
  5. Arrange kabobs on a cooking spray coated grill rack, shut lid, and grill 6 to 8 minutes, flipping once.
  6. In the meantime, using a food processor or blender, pulse all sauce ingredients until smooth. Serve sauce on side.
