Steamed Eggplant


I really like eggplant and my mother recently told me about this quick 10 minute recipe for a healthy meal.

Ingredients:

  • 4 Asian eggplants

  • 2 tablespoons red rice vinegar (note: not red wine vinegar)

  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce

  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil, such as canola

  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons granulated sugar

Preparation:

  1. Remove the stalk from the eggplants. Cut in the middle and then cut each half lengthwise so that you have 4 equal pieces

  2. Steam the eggplant over high heat until softened (about 5 minutes). Remove from the heat and cool

  3. Whisk together the remaining ingredients. Pour over the eggplant and serve.
