While you are all reading the article and giving this a thought I put my time to making a super good baby white eggplant stew.
Wash and cut 3 cups of baby eggplant in half. Peel and thinly slice and onion. Slice a cup of mushrooms. Finely dice two cloves of garlic, a tablespoon of fresh ginger and 2 teaspoons of poblano or jalapeno chile. Open a small 4.5 oz can of chunky tomatoes in juice and begin. Saute the eggplant and veggies in a large pan over medium heat. Season lightly. Add the tomatoes and juice with 2 teaspoons low sodium soy, 1 generous tablespoon oyster sauce and almost cover all with water. Simmer very slowly about 30 minutes. Taste for seasoning. Serve with a touch of rice and a sprinkle of chopped green onion and cilantro or basil to soak up the sauce and enjoy. If you want more heat, crushed red chili pepper flakes do the trick!
