Eggplant stir-fry

I have tired from the rich foods at the holidays. I’m ready to fill my whole plate with veggies. Eggplant stir-fry is a nice, light meal to help you return to normalcy.

This is a great lunch or dinner recipe that requires minimal effort in the kitchen. You cook the vegetables while the rice cooks. Everything should be ready to eat in 20 minutes.

It’s this kind of simplicity that helps you eat right. And it’s tasty, too.
