2 long, thin eggplants
10 cherry sized tomatoes, or a couple of large ones
1/2 pound green beans
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
4 teaspoons sugar
Thai basil (a few leaves or more, depending on your taste)
2 teaspoons lime juice
1 tablespoon peanuts
Split and brush eggplants w/ olive oil. Grill or broil until lightly brown and soft, but still firm enough to cut up into bite-sized pieces.
Meanwhile, cut beans into 1-2 inch pieces. Cook in salted water or steam.
In a serving bowl, mix oyster sauce, sugar, lime juice and Thai basil until sugar is dissolved. Mix in tomatoes, beans and eggplant in sauce, and garnish w/ roasted peanuts. Serve with grilled chicken, fish, etc.
Serves 2-4 people
