Sauteed Japanese Eggplant

Share:

Japanese eggplant are gorgeous purple looking veggies that taste as good on the inside as they look on the outside. I made a Japanese eggplant sauté w fresh ginger, crispy pea pods, scallions, and a kick of jalapeño. This dish was totally easy to make and IMO came out better than those oily Chinese restaurant stir fries.
