Chili Garlic Eggplant

Eggplant isn't everyone's favorite vegetable but this recipe will change your mind. It is so flavorful for being such an easy recipe. I prefer to use the small japanese eggplant that you can find at asian market's,  but the larger eggplants work too (pictured). You can use this sauce on any vegetable for a simple side dish to accompany your meal. Quick, easy and cheap? Best combination ever.

1 Large Eggplant or 3 Small Japanese Eggplants
1 TBSP Sambal Oelek (Chili Garlic Sauce)
1 TBSP Tamari (Gluten Free Soy Sauce)
1/2 TBSP Brown Sugar
1/4 TSP Sesame Oil
1 Green Onion, Green Parts, Chopped

Heat oven to 350 Degrees.
Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cut eggplant into round disks.
Mix Sambal Oelek, Tamari, Brown Sugar, Sesame oil in a bowl. 
Toss Eggplant in sauce and make sure both sides are coated.
Cook in oven for about 10 minutes until you can easily poke a fork through the eggplant.
Serve hot and enjoy! xx
