Hot and Spicy Eggplant

Stir Fried Hot and Spicy Eggplant

Hot and Spicy Eggplant is my version of a classic, irresistible Thai dish, bursting with flavor and very easy to make. The green chiles add an interesting, very complementary flavor.

Here’s one of my all-time favorite recipes. I looove the eggplant in my favorite Thai restaurant, and this is just as good. Plus, it’s easy to make, infallible, and just irresistible. The first time I made this, I the whole thing myself, all in one sitting. It was my entire dinner. I like to sauté this in my wok and just serve it over rice. For variation, you can add small strips of chicken or beef.

I hope you love this as much as I do!
