I found this for the Zaar World Tour. It reminds me of my favorite dish at my favorite restaurant in Chinatown.

I have never cooked eggplant before. I read the reviews and one said it was too salty, so I didn't put on the optional salt and used reduced sodium soy sauce. It turned out perfect! I love how it tastes - great recipe for a novice!
