Garlic Eggplant & Honey Glazed Chilli Potatoes

I am so excited... Saturday was the opening day for the farmer's market here in Kalamazoo and it was super busy, the weather was great and the day was perfect! I think that alone will get me excited to cook again :)

Here's a recipe I cooked up for Garlic Eggplant after having it in a restaurant and wanting to recreate the taste... It turned out as good as I was hoping for!

Ingredients:

  • 1 large eggplant, sliced in half, sliced again, and cut into half moons
  • 1 onion, halved and chopped into big pieces
  • 1 green pepper, chopped into 1-inch pieces
  • salt, to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper powder
  • couple tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
Method:

Put cornstarch in a bowl and add soy sauce. Whisk until smooth, then add the sugar, vinegar and garlic... set aside.

Heat oil in a large skillet and fry onion and green pepper for a very short time, making sure they are still crisp. Add in eggplant with 1/2 cup water, cover, and steam the eggplant for about 5 minutes, making sure the
eggplant doesn't stick to the pan. When eggplant is soft, add in sauce and white pepper powder and and cook until sauce is hot. Enjoy!

I served this along with Authentic Food Delights Honey Chilli Potatoes which were excellent :) I didn't have any green onions so I used a regular onion, which was fine... but next time I'll use green onions :)
