Rather than a traditional stir-fry, you’ll be using a technique here that’s more like steam-stirring—keeping calories in check. The spotlight is on the eggplant. Hemp seeds complete it, adding protein and intrigue.

INGREDIENTS

SERVES 1

  • 2 tsp Tamari Soy Sauce
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp Fresh Ginger Root
  • 1/3 cup Low Sodium Organic Chicken Broth
  • 2 tsp Toasted Sesame Oil
  • 1 small eggplant
  • 2 stalk scallion(s)
  • 3 tbsp Organic Hemp Hearts
  • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice

DIRECTIONS

1 Whisk together the soy sauce, honey and ginger in a liquid measuring cup or small bowl. Set aside.

3 Bring the broth and oil to a boil in a seasoned wok or large skillet over high heat. (TIP: For vegetarians, use 1/3 cup of low-sodium vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.) Add the eggplant and white part of the scallions and cook while stirring until the liquid is fully evaporated and eggplant is fully cooked, about 4 minutes. Add the soy sauce mixture, hemp seeds and green part of the scallions and toss to coat.
4 Enjoy with brown rice (or other whole grain of choice).
