If you’re looking for a quick, easy and healthy dinner then this Asian Eggplant Stir Fry is for you!  Check out my post and the recipe over at Marcus Samuelsson’s blog.

This recipe is from the cookbook Meatless Meals for Meat Eaters, the author of which is actually another blogger, Miriam!  Although the rest of her family eats meat, Miriam’s goal is to provide them with healthy vegetarian meals that are so tasty they won’t even realize they’re meatless!  Her cookbook is full of delicious comfort foods turned veg that will definitely satisfy just about any palate.  Highly recommended!

    I’m always up for a good eggplant stir-fry! Nice meaty texture. Can’t wait for my CSA Box this summer.

  11. Pierce says:

    This inspires me. I LOVE eggplant. Love it!! We actually have one home, languishing alone in the crisper. Tonight I am following your example, Joanne.

  12. Great healthy meal, as always. You know I always think that I hate eggplant but if it’s in front of me, I’ll eat it, thinking that it’s tofu. And I’ll like it. But I’m still so stubborn to believe that I hate eggplant.

    That’ll all going to change once I make this though 🙂

  13. Juliana says:

  15. What a great concept for a book! Eggplant is a hearty and earthy substitution for most meats, and I enjoy it very much. I’d love to try this stir fry!

  16. JoJo says:

    This looks yummy and flavorful! Yes, people think meals don’t taste good without meat, WRONG!
    I love eggplant 😀

  17. I’m an eggplant nut… I really don’t understand folks who can’t get behind it. And Asian eggplant, especially when prepared like this, is heaven.

  18. Lori says:

    Definitely going to check this one out. It will be perfect when the eggplant starts in our garden this summer. I never know quite what to do with it all! (Which I realize is a good problem to have.)

  31. Epicurea says:

    i just recently started using more eggplant and am getting more comfortable preparing it, this looks like a great new recipe to try!

  32. Eggplants are my absolute favourite veges!! And I love stir fry eggplants especially when they’re slightly overcooked so I get that soft, chewy texture.. mmmmmm……… Totally drooling over this now!!!

  33. I am always looking for new ways to do eggplant / aubergine 🙂

  34. Barbara says:

    Anything with eggplant gets my attention. And usually it doesn’t photograph well…but you sure did a great job with it in this dish, Joanne. Keeping the skin on and cooking it fast sure helps the final results. This looks wonderful!

    If I ate eggplant I’d be all over this!
