Pork and Chinese Eggplant Stir-Fry

over Brown Rice

Read more

Chinese eggplant is longer and thinner-skinned than its Italian cousin, making it perfect for stir-frying. Sautéed with yellow squash, pork, and an umami-packed sauce, this stir-fry hits all the marks. Brown rice is a healthy swap we prefer for its heartiness.

1

Cook the rice: Bring a medium pot of salted water to boil with the rice and stock concentrate. Cook for 25-30 minutes, or until tender. Drain, like pasta, then return to the pot. Cover to steam.

2

Wash and dry all produce. Cut the eggplant into ½-inch cubes. Thinly slice the yellow squash into rounds. Trim, then thinly slice the scallions on a diagonal, keeping the greens and whites separate. Thinly slice the garlic. Cut the lime into wedges.

3

Heat a large drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the eggplant and squash and cook, tossing for 7-8 minutes, or until tender and golden brown. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from the pan and set aside.

4

Heat a drizzle of oil in the same pan over medium heat. Add the scallion whites and garlic and cook, tossing for 1-2 minutes, until slightly softened. Add the pork to the pan and cook, breaking up the meat into pieces, for 3-4 minutes, until browned and cooked through. Season with salt and pepper.

5

Return the squash and eggplant to the pan. Add the soy sauce and cook, tossing until the vegetables have been warmed through.

6

Serve: Plate the pork and Chinese eggplant stir-fry on a bed of brown rice and squeeze over with a wedge of lime juice. Garnish with the scallion greens and enjoy!
