Deliciously spicy, garlicky and packed with umami… soft aubergine absorbs all the beautiful flavours in this quick and easy mid-week dinner.
The Doubanjiang paste is essential in this dish; this fermented spicy bean paste has deep savoury and salty flavours and is used in Sichuan cuisine. It can be found in Oriental supermarkets and even on Amazon. It is worth keeping some in your pantry as it lifts many dishes!
Give this one try… much tastier than a takeaway!
