Japanese eggplant is absolutely delicious stir fried with miso!
I used 3 Japanese eggplants. These were from our garden. 🙂 You can see some of them are yellowed. I used them for this dish.
All you need is Japanese eggplant, miso, sake, thai chilis, garlic, and olive oil.
Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a skillet on med high. When the oil is hot, add the minced garlic and chilis. Stir frequently for around 1 minute or so. Add sliced Japanese eggplant, and continue to stir fry for around 5-10 minutes, or until your eggplant is tender. You may want to lower the heat a bit to medium if you like. Heat should be med – med high and keep stir frying so it doesn’t burn!
Make a paste with 2 tbsp of miso and 1 tbsp of sake. Stir well.
When the eggplant is tender after 5-10 minutes, then add the miso and sake paste, and stir until incorporated.
Enjoy this delicious stir fried Japanese eggplant! Garnish with green onions.
