Eggplant Adobo

Picture: 
Ingredients: 
4 cups eggplant, cut into 1 inch pieces
1/4 cup vegetable or corn oil
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce (low sodium works really well)
1 tbsp. finely minced garlic
Directions: 

~Serves:4

Fry eggplant cubes in oil until brown. Set aside on paper towel to absorb the oil. In a sauce pan (I used a frying pan) bring vinegar, soy sauce and garlic to a boil and simmer for 6 minutes. Add fried eggplant to mixture and cook for 5 minutes more, turning eggplant several times. Serve hot.

~We loved this dish! It is so fast and yummy. The one thing that we would change is to use low sodium soy sauce to cut down on some of the salt. A wonderful appetizer...

Calphalon One Infused Anodized Fry Pan (purchase at Chefs Catalog) I use this pan for a lot of frying. I love the Calphalon pans. The special thing about the Infused pans are they can also be put in the oven and used with the broiler. Wonderful!

On a plate, lay wrappers flat, place a segment of lettuce leaf on wrapper, then put about 2-4 tbsp. of filling on top of lettuce and roll wrapper. Seal with a little water along the edge and place edges down. Serve with lumpia sauce.

Wrapper

Mix all the ingredients until very smooth. Lightly grease a non-stick pan and heat. Brush mixture onto pan. When dough starts to come away from the pan, lift wrapper out carefully. It will not lift out if mixture is not done. Do not cook other side.

Sauce:

Combine cornstarch, sugar, soy sauce and water. Cook 5 minutes over low heat, stirring constantly to prevent lumps. When done serve with the wrappers.
