Number of Servings: 8


    4-5 Chinese or Japanese eggplants
    2 tbl garlic
    1 tbl ginger
    1 c vegetable or low-sodium chicken broth (water will do in a pinch)
    3 tbl rice vinegar (adjust to taste)
    1 tbl sugar
    1 tbl soy sauce
    2 tbl oil
    cayenne pepper to taste
    2 tbl cornstarch
    1/4 c water
    1 tsp sesame oil
    2 bunches scallions


Cut eggplants into 1 1/2 inch slices, then cut the slices into quarters. Cut scallions into 1 1/2 inch pieces. Put sauce ingredients together (broth, vinegar, sugar, and soy sauce) and set aside. Heat oil, saute ginger and garlic. Stir-fry eggplant for a couple of minutes. (It will soak up the oil fast!) Add sauce, cook until eggplant is tender. Mix cornstarch and water, add to eggplant. Stir a moment, then add scallions. When sauce thickens, add cayenne and sesame oil.

Makes 8 1-cup servings.

    This was excellent! Takes longer than you might think for eggplant to get soft, but definitely keep simmering until it does. I also soaked the eggplant slices in water then patted dry before cooking. This keeps the eggplant from soaking up all the oil. Will definitely make again. - 1/11/13

    deelish!!! I have made this recipe several times now. Used 1 reg. large eggplant (can't get the japanese or chinese here in our small alaskan town). Did add thinly sliced cabbage and chopped cilantro at the end with the scallions. Have also tried it adding chicken breast or lean pork loin. - 1/11/10
