"You need to find the small thin Japanese or Chinese eggplants for this recipe. You may sub the larger ones but the thin small ones lend themselves best for this recipe. Eggplant, garlic and tomatoes what can possibly go better together? Very easy recipe to prepare. Have every thing ready in advance then just stir fry! This recipe is from the May 2012 Bon appetit magazine. Some modification by me to the recipe."
