  • 1 large eggplant thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 clove garlic minced


  • In a mixing bowl, add all your ingredients and mix well, until all the eggplant is coated in the oil and spices.
  • Grease a non-stick pan and place it over medium heat. Once hot, add the slices of eggplant and cook for 4-5 minutes, before flipping and cooking for a further 5 minutes.
  • Remove the eggplant from the stove and serve immediately.


TO STORE: Fried eggplant can be stored in the refrigerator, covered. It will keep well for up to 5 days.
TO FREEZE: Place leftover eggplant in a shallow container and store it in the freezer for up to 6 months.
REHEATING: While the eggplant can be microwaved, it's best to reheat the eggplant in the non-stick pan until warm and fragrant.
