How about an international favorite that will also protect your skin? Eggplant is a good source of fiber, calcium, and other vitamins, while garlic fights bacteria and keeps mosquitos away.

Chinese Eggplant with Garlic Sauce


  • 5 large garlic cloves, peeled and minced
  • 2 Chinese eggplants
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons of peanut oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil (for taste)
  • 1/2 inch fresh ginger
  • 4 scallions sliced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce or liquid aminos
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons honey


  1. Combine the soy sauce, honey, water, and sesame oil in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of peanut oil in a wok (or deep skillet) over high heat.
  3. Add the eggplant and stir-fry for a few minutes (about 5 minutes) until golden brown.
  4. Remove the eggplant from the wok (or skillet) and set aside. 
  5. Add the remaining peanut oil, ginger, and garlic and stir-fry in the same wok for 30 seconds.
  6. Return the eggplant to the wok (or skillet).
  7. Stir in the soy sauce mixture and continue to stir fry for 2-3 minutes or until the sauce is thickened.
  8. Sprinkle with scallions and serve immediately.

Call to Action

Just as trusting and obeying God is supposed to be “health to your flesh, and strength to your bones” (Proverbs 3:8), the food we eat should not only do the same but taste wonderful.
