This is a wonderful Chinese side dish that is also vegan. Steamed eggplant is tossed in a spicy garlic sauce. Eat with rice, or as part of a larger meal.
Found this an excellent, alternative quick way to cook aubergines. I doubled the proportions of the dressing as I also added kidney beans, onions, and black bean paste for a main dish and gently heated. Didn't salt the aubergines as they weren't bitter, omitted the MSG for health, and didn't have any cornflour. Delicious, thank you. - 18 Nov 2011 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
