Guess who got a new mandolin for christmas??

NOPE , no the instrument, a mandolin slicer. Vegans best friend ; p

OXO Good Grips V-Blade Mandoline Slicer

1992mandolin

 

I highly recommend this product! The V-blades are all self contained storage-wise on this puppy and it comes completely apart for easy cleaning : )

It props up on an angle for ease of use and the safety guard is quite large and…. well safe ; p Oh the things I shall slice …

Mooving on to the edible stuff

What you need.

2 “chinese ” eggplants AKA “long eggplant”

2 cloves of garlic

2 table spoon of miso paste

1 teaspoon of fresh chopped ginger

1/3 cup of water

2 tablespoons of white vinegar

1 splash of sesame oil

The process

Preheat the oven to 425

* wash and slice the eggplant as desired. I used my mandolin and julianed the eggplant using the french fry setting.

In a bowl, mix the miso paste,vinegar,sesame oil  and water until a saucy like consistency is achieved.

Dice and stir in the fresh garlic and ginger.

Pour and mix the miso sauce with the eggplants.

Place on a coconut oil greased baking sheet.

Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes making sure to stir every 5 minutes. ( time may vary depending on oven)

Once they begin to brown remove from the oven and serve as a delicious side dish! *I paired mine with steamed rice and barley.

yummmers!

Enjoy!
