Lunch Time! Spicy Eggplant

I was inspired by this spicy eggplant recipe while looking for something to make for dinner last night. I was a lil’ lazy though and made it even easier by using a pre-made sauce. It’s loaded with sodium so try not to add to much or just make your own.

All I did was cube two small eggplants and fry them in some olive oil along with garlic for about 8 minutes. I added bean sprouts and 1/3 cup of the sauce around the last minute or so of cooking just to heat it all up. It turned out great and very spicy which I love. I served it with some quinoa and it was really good.

I had so much leftover that I packed it for lunch today and it was wonderful!

What’s your favorite eggplant recipe?

    An Indian dish called baingan bharta is my favorite eggplant recipe! This spicy eggplant looks good too.

      I bet that’s really good! I’ve been eating a lot of wraps lately but never thought to put eggplant in one. I will have to do that pronto! :]

    This looks delicious, and so easy! I’m looking forward to your little lunch time series. Too often I default to PB&J. :)

    that looks good! to be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of eggplant, but I do add it to some meals. My favorite must be ratatouille – what’s better than a bunch of veggies cooked together? :)

      I hadn’t even tried eggplant until a little over a year ago. Crazy, huh? I kept buying them but then had no idea what to do with them!

      I’ve never tried ratatouille, but it sounds really good. I need to make it sometime!
