    Kumquat the Cat's friend's Note:

    This looked interesting, and I am posting here for safekeeping. Will update description when I try it. Good thing about it is that it offers substitutes for hard-to-find Asian ingredients. A recipe by Haryumi Kurihara, the "empress of Japanese domesticity" based on an article I cut out of the NY Times.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cut off stems of eggplant and cut in half lengthwise. Soak in cold water 5 minutes, drain and pat dry. Arrange on a microwave-safe plate, cover with plastic wrap and cook until softened and tender (3-6 minutes). Let stand a few minutes to finish cooking. Or steam eggplant 5-7 minutes or until limp and tender.
    2. 2
      In a bowl combine sugar, soy sauce, sake (or sherry), vinegar, sesame seeds and sesame paste (or peanut butter).
    3. 3
      Cut (skinned if desired) eggplant into strips about 1/2 inch wide and 3 inches long. A handful at a time, wrap strips in paper towels and squeeze to get rid of extra water. Mound on serving plate.
    4. 4
      Drizzle sauce over eggplant, and scatter myoga (or shallots) and shiso (or herbs) on top. Serve warm or at room temperature.
    5. 5
      For Vegan if using Sake make sure the Sake is Vegan friendly.

      You can also use tahini instead of Japanese sesame paste.

      I don't know what I did wrong here but I followed the directions and the eggplant was like mush. I also should have peeled it because the skin was too tough. We didn't like the dressing either.

      I made this for ZWT4 as well. I used Sherry, peanut butter & a mix of mint and basil leaves. I also used Japanese eggplant. I served it with some grilled pork. Yummy!
