Microwave-Steamed Chinese-style Eggplants

Microwave-Steamed Chinese-style Eggplants

Just marinate microwave steamed eggplants in a Chinese-style sauce!

Ingredients: 3-4 servings

Eggplants (slim Japanese type)
5 to 6
For the sauce:
Ponzu (see Recipe ID: 484037)
100 ml
1 tablespoon
Sesame oil
1 tablespoon
Grated garlic
1 tablespoon
Grated ginger
1 tablespoon


1. Mix the sauce ingredients together. Raw grated garlic has a rather harsh flavor, so I recommend using grated garlic from a jar or tube.
2. Cut the eggplants in half lengthwise. Make some cuts in the skin side of the eggplant, then slice diagonally. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave until tender.
3. Marinate the cooked eggplant in the sauce. Serve after marinating it for a while.

Story Behind this Recipe

I love microwave-steamed eggplants, so I made an easy side dish with it.
