A great way to enjoy one sadly overlooked vegetable. The Eggplant. Add your favorite protein for a great one dish meal! This is my version of my friend Mayumi's recipe. I prefer the long and thin Japanese or Chinese eggplant. They taste less acidic.

  • 5 japanese eggplants, sliced thinly the short way (they're long and thin- if you only have the larger eggplant, one medium is plenty, diced)
  • 1 slice fresh ginger
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (or tamari)
  • 2 teaspoons mirin (you can use a bit more if you prefer your sauce a little sweeter)
