Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs. Thai red curry paste
  • 1 Tbs. sugar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (1 tsp.)
  • 1 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • 1 small eggplant (8 oz.) cut into 1-inch-thick chunks, or 2 cups round Thai eggplants, halved
  • 1 small onion, quartered and sliced (1 cup)
  • 1 lb. mustard greens, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup light coconut milk
  • Lime wedges, for garnish

Preparation

1. Whisk together curry paste, sugar, garlic, and 2 Tbs. water in small bowl. Set aside.

2. Heat oil in wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add eggplant and onion, and cook 5 minutes, or until eggplant is browned. Stir in curry mixture, and cook 30 seconds, or until vegetables are coated.
