Pork, Eggplant, and Squash Stir-Fry
with Sesame and Ginger over Brown Rice
We love the way eggplant with garlic sauce revels in contrasts, placing equal emphasis on the sweet, the sour, and the savory. But when we wanted to do it the HelloFresh way, we decided to make it bigger and bolder, adding in hearty ground pork and slices of bright yellow squash. The end result is something that feels satisfying and wholesome, especially on top of a bed of hearty brown rice.
