Hey everyone! I was going through the blog recently and noticed that we do not have many Asian/ Chinese Cuisine recipes. Its one of my family’s favorite cuisine and I felt that I am not doing justice to it considering the fact the number of times I make them at home on a monthly basis. I usually don’t plan our meals and prepare something that the kids request on that day. This is one way we get our kids excited about food. They love the fact that most Asian cuisines can be prepared in under 15 minutes and we use whatever combination of protein and veggies we’ve got on hand at any given time.
When I saw and purchased long, Asian eggplants from my local farmers market, I knew something sweet and spicy was in the making. We at The Belly Rules The Mind (TBRTM) love eggplant a lot !! In summer we grill it, make dips, but if you’re looking for another quick way of cooking it, a stir-fry will let you avoid cranking on the oven, too. There is something great about a simple stir-fry eggplant. Its one of the few dishes I could enjoy from pretty much any Chinese take-out menu, anytime. A good sauce is key, and you can make a tasty one for this at home to heap over a bowl of rice.
This recipe is perfect for summer and one you need to put on your “must try” list. It’s one my whole family and loves and a dish were all your family and friends always end up going back for seconds. The Eggplants is so tender and the sauce on top is truly divine. We love serving the sweet and spicy Eggplant in lettuce wraps, but you could also serve over a bed of rice.
This quick and easy Sweet & Spicy Eggplant lettuce wraps are flavored with garlic, ginger, green onions, bell peppers, onions, sesame, and a bit of spice.The sweet and spicy sauce is what truly takes this eggplant lettuce wrap over the top. It has the perfect flavor!
The best thing about this recipe is it’s made in one pan and done in 15 minutes. Then all you need to do is serve it in a lettuce wrap. We like to add a few green onions, crunchy peanuts on top too.
This recipe makes a great appetizer or for dinner with rice or a light lunch like me and R1 used some lettuce to make Eggplant lettuce wraps :D. Basic ingredients make this recipe a quick on to stir-fry together in less than 15 minutes. The recipe can be tweaked for your taste, liking and enjoyment, add in mushrooms, tofu…..
