Another delicious recipe I couldn’t help to share!!
I actually have a garden in my backyard where I grow eggplants and I had so many that were ripe so I decided to make one of my favorite eggplant recipes. I’m truly not a huge fan of eggplant and I feel like it’s quite difficult to cook and there’s not many dishes that have eggplants. This recipe, though, totally changed my view and it is SOOOOOOO GOOD. Trust me on this! If you’re not a huge fan of eggplant as well, I really recommend giving this a try and seeing if it’ll change your mind!
I love cooking with coconut milk… I feel like it gives such a creamy, unique taste to every dish and it adds just a pop of exactly what you need. Especially with this eggplant recipe, it’s so yummy and just elevates everything to the next level. Yum!!!
This Thai eggplant dish is a family favorite. With coconut milk and Thai basil, everything comes together so nicely and it is such a creamy and satisfying recipe. It’s also super simple to make, just a combination of all the ingredients stir fried together! Just like my Thai holy basil stir fry chicken recipe, there’s so many options that are available to switch up. This specific stir fry that’s pictured above is made with ground beef, but you can choose any type of meat you want, ranging from chicken to pork or even tofu! I also used some orange bell peppers to really give this a kick of color but that’s completely optional as well.
Super creamy and indulging, I always love eating this recipe for any meal of the day 🙂 I’ll list the ingredients below and I’ll also link the video to show you the directions on how to make it! Enjoy!!
