After the duck nigiri sushi, I need to make something simple last night. This steamed eggplant has been on my to-cook list for a long time. It is extremely easy to prepare. The minimum ingredients you will need will be cooking oil, soy sauce and an eggplant. This is a dish I learnt from my mom and I could not believe such a simple dish can be so delicious that makes you want more. It is perfect for a meatless meal. No kidding, I only prepared this veggie dish and ate with steamed rice but feeling completely satisfied without craving for meat! My mom only used those 3 ingredients described above and I have added a few more simple seasonings to give the dish a kick and it worked really well.
