  • In large frying pan, briefly saute ginger, garlic, scallions, and red pepper in canola oil.
  • Mix together soy sauce, brown sugar, rice vinegar, and hot water to make sauce.
  • Add sauce to ingredients in frying pan and bring to a gentle simmer.
  • Add eggplant, mix together, and heat through.
  • Remove from heat, add sesame oil, and mix thoroughly.
  • Garnish with cilantro and serve with pita chips or crostini.
