Talking about this DELICIOUS vegan recipe. One of our favorite easy weeknight meals to make at home. This is the BEST eggplant teriyaki. What do you think of swapping chicken for eggplant? Would you try it?
Eggplant is one of those love it or hate it type of ingredients. FUN FACT: while it’s generally thought as being a vegetable, eggplant is in fact a fruit. Did you know that? I have to admit that I didn’t know this until recently.
What do I need to make this?
You will need 1 large eggplant for 4 servings. Try making this in a large batch on Sunday and eat it for lunch throughout the week. The eggplant holds the flavor and texture.
Store bought teriyaki sauce. My favorite store bought brand is Soy Vay Veri Veri Teriyaki. It’s my favorite of store brands. I’m not good at making teriyaki sauce at home. I always have the ingredients on hand in my pantry, but any time I try to make it from scratch, it ends up being too thin and doesn’t have that kick I’m going for.
Veri Veri Teriyaki has fresh ginger and garlic in the bottle. It’s delicious and we use it for so many recipes.
1 cup of rice. I always have basmati rice in the pantry. It’s a staple in our home. If you prefer cauliflower rice or brown rice, you do you! Any of those would be delicious with this meal. Speaking of pantry staples – have you downloaded my FREE pantry stockpile list? You can find it here.
Garnish with some sesame seeds and green onions. Voila! Perfect weeknight meal that even your pickiest eater will love. The BEST eggplant teriyaki.
