Eggplant with Rice Vinegar Sauce

This flavorful dish is inspired by Japanese cuisine. Stir-frying the eggplant sticks in olive oil and garlic tames and enriches their tangy taste while keeping their juiciness intact. Cook the sticks in a sweet, spicy, and sour rice vinegar sauce. You can have this as the glorious main course or as a hearty side dish, too!

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
