Okay -- I'm not afraid to say it or post it. Razz We tried this today and it is excellent. This is a recipe from Hungry Girl - Lisa Lillien - Caught her on OZ one day and have used many of her delights. Try this one if you like eggplant you will not be disappointed. Very Happy

"HG, why does a simple veggie stir-fry need a guilt-free makeover?" Oh, sweet reader, how we wish this were a world in which restaurant folks did not feel the need to smother innocent veggies in oil. Until our wish comes true, you need our lightened-up swap!

1 tsp. cornstarch
1 tbsp. reduced-sodium/lite soy sauce
2 tsp. sweet Asian chili sauce
1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda or Truvia)
1/2 tsp. sesame oil
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
4 cups peeled eggplant cut into 1" cubes (Chinese or Japanese eggplant, if available)
1 tsp. minced garlic
3 tbsp. chopped scallions, or more for garnish

To make the sauce, in a small bowl, combine cornstarch with 1/4 cup cold water, and stir to dissolve. Add soy sauce, chili sauce, sweetener, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes. Mix well.

Bring a wok (or large skillet) sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Cook and stir eggplant until mostly softened, 8 - 10 minutes.

Add garlic and continue to cook and stir until eggplant is soft and garlic is fragrant, about 2 minutes.

Stir sauce mixture, and add to the wok. Add scallions, and cook and stir until sauce has thickened, about 1 minute. Eat up!
