    Kirby's Note:

    A great way to enjoy one sadly overlooked vegetable. The Eggplant. Add your favorite protein for a great one dish meal! This is my version of my friend Mayumi's recipe. I prefer the long and thin Japanese or Chinese eggplant. They taste less acidic.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 5 Japanese eggplants, sliced thinly the short way (they're long and thin- if you only have the larger eggplant, one medium is plenty, diced)
    • 1 garlic clove
    • 1 slice fresh ginger
    • 59.14 ml soy sauce (or tamari)
    • 9.85 ml mirin (you can use a bit more if you prefer your sauce a little sweeter)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine Soy sauce, mirin, crushed garlic and ginger in a bowl.
    2. 2
      Slice your eggplant thinly and into small pieces.
    3. 3
      Toss eggplant in hot pan (I use a spray oil like Pam) with the sauce mixture.
    4. 4
      Sauté at a medium heat until very tender, about 10 minutes.
    5. 5
      Add a little water to keep the veg moist if necessary.
    6. 6
      Great as a side dish for fish or chicken.
    7. 7
      Add diced medium firm tofu or any other protein for a very simple, quick meal.

      Great, simple dish. I find it hard to saute eggplants without using a lot of oil( since they soak it up easily).But the addition of a little water did the trick. It is now a rather healthy,low-fat dish! Thanks! ( and i reduced the soy sauce too!)

      I thoroughly enjoyed this dish, I did it with Soy but I do think it would be better with tamari as it would not be quite as salty. It is so easy to do and it is something I will do again but with tamari.

      Good ! I made the recipe as directed. I was a bit disappointed with the flavor - I expectd it to be sweeter.
