Eggplant & Egg

"I love this dish! My mother would go to the local farmers market every Saturday to buy the eggplants. She would come home and roast them and serve them with chopped tomatoes. sweet onions and a splash of patis (fish sauce). Cook this mixture down and add some beaten egg for a heartier dish. This is my comfort food the one dish no matter where I am that reminds me of home :)"

Ready In:




  • Prick entire eggplant with a fork. Spray with a non-stick cooking spray and roast at 400 for about 25-30 minutes or until tender, turning once.
  • Place in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. When it is cool enough to handle remove skin and shred.
  • Heat oil in a saute pan and add onions. When soft and translucent add tomatoes.
  • Cook until tomatoes have broken down. Add shredded eggplant. Season with half the fish sauce and simmer.
  • Add salt & pepper to taste to the beaten eggs. Careful with the salt. The fish sauce may be enough for you.
  • Add eggs to the eggplant. Lower heat and stir until eggs are no longer runny. You don't want chunks of egg, so keep stirring, breaking up the egg into the eggplant mixture.
  • Taste for seasoning, add more fish sauce if desired. Serve over steamed rice.

I love to cook which is why I'm a recipezaar junkie! It is so great to have all the recipes I want at my fingertips. Well, it is all about me....I've been married to my amazing husband for three years. When I'm not experimenting with recipes at home, we love to dine at all the great restaurants here in Hawaii. We travel a lot between Maui and Oahu being we live and work on Oahu and most of our loved ones are on Maui. Whenever possible we try to get to the beach for our sunset barbeques. The picture posted was taken in front of his grandmother's beach house in Hau'ula. How lucky are we? Update 02/06/08: My husband & I have relocated to Alabama. My military man is stationed at Ft. Rucker & attending flight school. Though we are soo far from our family & home I'm loving it here. I do miss the fresh island fish and the local farmer's market. It's been a challenge finding the ingrediants I'm used to using. I drive my DH crazy going store to store to find what I need. When it's all said & done and there is a delicious meal in front of him, he says it's all worth it! We have definately embraced the food of the south. It's a culinary adventure & I'm enjoying the ride. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
