Steamed Eggplant with Chili Crisp and Soy Black Vinegar Sauce

Any foods that are typically steamed over boiling water can be steamed in a Combi steam oven.

Multiple foods can be steamed at the same time with no transfer of flavor, and dishes such as this spicy eggplant can be cooked and served in the same cooking container.

This recipe for steamed eggplant requires minimal preparation, just a quick soak in water with some vinegar to remove any bitterness and help the eggplant hold its shape. Then the sauce ingredients are assembled and poured over the eggplant and cooked in the Steam mode until tender.  The eggplant absorbs the flavors of the sauce and is finished with just a light drizzle of sesame oil for added flavor.


INGREDIENTS


Eggplant


1lb Chinese or Japanese eggplant, (3 - 4), chopped into bite-sized pieces
