Helpful Hints
  • If Chinese eggplant is unavailable, substitute regular eggplant. Cut into 1-inch cubes (unpeeled).

  • Hoisin sauce is a soybean paste product available in the ethnic food section of most grocery stores. One tablespoon hoisin sauce contains 250 mg sodium (63 mg per serving). Look for Sun Luck brand, available from Sun Luck of Seattle, Washington. A very small amount adds lots of flavor!
