Vegetarian Steamed Eggplant with Garlic Sauce

Ben made this vegetarian Eggplant as a side dish.


  • 1 long Eggplant
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • chili flakes, optional
  • toasted sesame seeds for garnishing


Remove stem from eggplant, cut into 2 inches chunks and cut each chunk lengthwise into half.

Bring water to a boil in a steamer and steam eggplant for 5 minutes, until softened.

Use a pair of scissors to cut the eggplant into 3 smaller pieces for each chunk.
Mix the sauce ingredients in a small bowl.
Ben spiced up the sauce with some Japanese red pepper powder.
Toss the sauce with the steamed eggplant and garnish with toasted sesame seeds. Serve with steamed rice.
