This simple and tasty eggplant dish is a great addition to your meal and is perfect served with rice.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20-30 minutes
Makes: 2servings

Steamed eggplant

2 Lebanese eggplants
2 cloves of garlic
Soy sauce
Chopped shallots or coriander for garnish (optional)

Wash the eggplants and cut into wedges or strips.
Place the cut eggplant into a bowl and sprinkle some salt and mix well. (The salt will draw out the excess moisture in the eggplants and get rid of the bitterness) - let this sit for 5-8 mins.
Mince the garlic and chop the shallots/coriander, set aside.
After 5-8 mins, rinse the eggplants with water to remove the salt. Drain well and pat dry with a paper towel.
Place the eggplants in the bowl or dish for steaming in.
Sprinkle the minced garlic over the eggplant
Place the dish into the steamer to steam.
Once cooked, remove the eggplant from the steamer
Heat about 1-2 teaspoon of oil in a small pan.
Sprinkle the chopped shallots/coriander onto the eggplants.
Once the oil is hot, quickly pour this over the eggplants/shallots. (Careful! As this is hot oil and will splatter when you pour this over the eggplants)
Pour a drizzle of soy sauce and serve!
