GLAZED EGGPLANT & TOFU on Sesame Rice 🍆🍚

An easy comforting recipe for all the eggplant lovers out there! Totally inspired by a lot of lovely Asian foodies and one of my faves: okonomikitchen – def go and check out her blog!

But first, make sure to save this recipe and enjoy it 😍

Ingredients:
200g Rice
1/2 Eggplant
1/2 Red Bell Pepper
1 Block Firm Tofu (200g)
Sesame Oil
Starch
Sesame

For the glaze:
1/2 Tbsp Miso Paste
1/2 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
2 Tbsp Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp Hoisin Sauce
1/2 Tsp Agave Syrup (or Sugar/Sweetener)
Chili

👉🏼 Wash rice and cook it according to package instructions. Chop eggplant, place it in cold salty water for 10 minutes – this makes it softer and mild when frying. Drain Tofu and press out excess liquid. Coat it with starch.

👉🏼 Add sesame and salt to cooked rice. Place the lid on top and set aside.

👉🏼 Heat some oil in a pan, add tofu and let it fry on each side until golden brown. Set tofu aside. Drain eggplant, place it in the pan with some more oil & bell pepper. Fry on medium heat until veggies get soft.

👉🏼 Mix miso paste and rice vinegar in a small bowl. To the pan add syrup and soy sauce, then tofu and lower the heat. Add hoisin & miso-vinegar mix – combine everything and finish off with some chili to taste.

Serve glazed eggplant & tofu on the sesame rice and sprinkle with more sesame seeds & scallions.

Lots of love,
Louisa 🧡
