Steamed Eggplant & Green Beans

20 Oct

Steamed eggplant seems similar in texture to whole oven roasted eggplant.  And it’s a surprisingly good vehicle for sauce.

  • 1 1/2 – 2 lbs eggplant
  • 3/4 lbs green beans

Sauce

  • 1/2 C soy sauce
  • 3 T rice vinegar
  • 1/4 C sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 gloves crushed garlic
  • 1 T grated ginger
  • 1/4 C scallions, finely chopped
  • 1/8 tsp Sriracha

Slice eggplant length-wise, steam for approximately 15 minutes.  Drain some liquid, scoop out seeds, then scoop out flesh.  Drain flesh some more and then roughly chop.

Cut green beans into bite-friendly sized pieces, steam for approximately 5 minutes.

Combine all the sauce ingredients, then spoon (approx 5 T – about 1/2 the recipe) over eggplant and green beans.
