Spicy Stir-Fried Eggplant (Aubergine)

Abby and I really liked this.  The rest of the family was either not as adventurous OR they just chose not to be lured by the curry smell.  It was good enough to make again!!

About This Recipe

“Eggplant is so full of nutrients and is a very filling vegetable as well – great for people who are just getting used to a vegetarian diet and who are missing the ‘chunky’ texture of meat in a dish. This makes either a very nice vegetarian/vegan main dish or a nice side to compliment an East Indian or Middle Eastern main dish.”
