Recipe Notes

How To Disgorge An Eggplant:
Eggplants are a loaded with water. In order to concentrate their flavor, place eggplant slices on a paper towel and lightly salt them. This will force the eggplant to secrete water while absorbing the salt, known as disgorging. Since there is less moisture in a disgorged eggplant, it won’t end up soggy on the grill! Be sure to implement this neat trick about one hour prior to using the eggplant.

  1. In a wok or saucepan over high heat, add 1 tablespoon of the cooking oil and swirl to coat wok. When wok is hot, add eggplant in a single layer.
  2. Cook 2 minutes and flip each piece over so they cook evenly. Cook another 2-3 minutes, flipping occasionally. The eggplant should have changed in color, the skin wrinkled and the flesh soft.
  3. Push eggplant aside in wok and add 1 tablespoon cooking oil. Add garlic, peppers, ginger and green onion. Stir these aromatics until they become fragrant.
  4. Combine aromatics with eggplant and stir-fry for one minute.
  5. Add soy sauce, balsamic vinegar and sugar and stir to combine all. Serve immediately and ENJOY!
