That’s because the flavors are out of this world and the textures are mouthwatering. It’s so simple to make this recipe too, furthermore once you make the eggplant stir fry you can add it to more than just tortillas, it’s perfect for noodles, wraps, salads, and more.
The first thing I do is cut up the eggplant and toss it with vinegar and salt in a large bowl. It’s important to let it sit for 20 minutes in order to have the eggplant release moisture. Make sure to pat it dry afterwards to soak up the moisture. This allows for a crispier end result! It also allows the eggplant to absorb the other flavors better.
Other ingredients you need for easy Asian eggplant vegan recipes like this include: 2 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 tbsp diced jalapeños, 1/4 cup diced onions, and 1/2 tbsp garlic paste.
Also 1/2 tbsp grated ginger, Juice of 1 lime, 3 tbsp cornstarch, and 2 tbsp sugar. Don’t forget 2 tbsp soy sauce, 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley, 2 tsp paprika, 1 tsp turmeric, and 1 tbsp red chili flakes. Last but not least you need 1.5 cups vegetable broth to make the saucey base.
