Steamed Aubergine with Spring Onion and Garlic

Prep: 10 Mins

Cook: 15 Mins

Don't be fooled by the simplicity of this dish, the dressing in the aubergine really takes things to a whole new level.

300g Chinese aubergines or regular aubergines 1 teaspoon salt

Spring Onion and Garlic Dressing

1 tablespoon light soy sauce 1 tablespoon rice vinegar 1 tablespoon granulated sugar 1 teaspoon Chiu Chow chilli oil 1 teaspoon sesame oil 1 garlic clove, finely chopped 1 tablespoon finely chopped spring onion 1 tablespoon finely chopped coriander

Preparation

  • Peel the aubergines and slice them into 2cm x 5cm thick sticks (roughly thumb-size pieces), put them in a bowl with the salt and cover with cold water.
  • Mix the dressing ingredients together in a bowl or small ramekin until the sugar is fully dissolved.
  • Drain the aubergine slices and lay them onto a large plate that will fit in your wok.

Cooking

  • Set the wok up with a steamer stand and fill with boiling water to a third of the way up the sides. Place the aubergine plate into the wok, cover with a lid and steam for 10–12 minutes, or until the aubergine is tender.
  • Remove the plate from the steamer, pour the dressing over the aubergine and mix together lightly.

TIP: To test whether the aubergine is cooked through, insert a fork into one of the pieces. If the fork goes straight through without any trouble, then the aubergine is ready to serve.
