Spicy Aubergine Stir Fry

I wanted spicy, Asian aubergine but not quite having the ingredients it called for and couldn’t be bothered to go to the store, I made some aubergine with refrigerator and pantry things in it;aubergine, scallions, garlic, ground beef, bean sprouts and a spicy sauce of sake, hon mirin, soy sauce, rice vinegar, “african” sauce( a substitute for sambal oelek ) and some powdered ginger, topped with surprising delicious mint leaves.

Okay, tomorrow I’ll get serious with a proper French cassoulet from the town of it’s origin, Castelnaudary.

    When I moved here in Thailand, I got allergies when I first tried their local green eggplants(the long and round ones). I’ve transitioned to veganism and I really loved this vegetable so I was bummed. I, however found a local lavender frog aubergine and I was fine after eating it! Anyways, I’ll try your recipe tomorrow sans the meat. 🙂
