Microwaved Doubanjiang Mayo Spicy Eggplant

Microwaved Doubanjiang Mayo Spicy Eggplant

This creamy eggplant is mixed with spicy doubanjiang mayonnaise. You can whip it up quickly.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Semi-dried young sardines (jako)
2 tablespoons
Chopped Japanese leeks, green onions, etc
a small amount
2 tablespoons
1 tablespoon (or as much as you like)
●Garlic powder
a small amount
●Black pepper
a small amount


1. Combine the ● ingredients in a dish.
2. Cut the eggplant into bite-sized chunks. Wrap with plastic wrap and microwave for about 4 minutes until wilted. Remove the wrap and lightly stir. The residual heat will evenly wilt all of the eggplant. Let cool.
3. Mix the sauce from Step 1 with the sardines until the sardines are completely coated in the seasonings. Garnish with the chopped leek and enjoy.
4. This time, I used a large eggplant. If using thin eggplants, you may need to use 2 or 3.
