Other than stir-fries, I don’t make much Chinese food at homes. With recipes like this one from Serious Eats, it feels much more accessible. This is the best Chinese-style eggplant recipe you’ll see today. Tamari, cooking wine, honey, chili and vinegar all do their part to give it a rich taste. Since we didn’t have rice wine on hand we used cooking wine instead, skipped the grilling and diced the eggplant nice and small. The dish works as a great contrast to the nuttiness of brown rice. Alongside the eggplant we had green beans and tofu. What are some of your favorite Chinese dishes to make at home?
Note: For those with restrictions, this recipe is already vegan and substituting tamari for soy makes it gluten free.
