from moms garden

My in-laws have a big vegetable garden. They even have a ricefield. And so me and hubby dont buy rice anymore , lucky no?! And during summer , I dont have to purchase some vegetables. Like this recipe , I only bought the chicken.

The eggplants , tomatoes and onions are from my dear mom. We also receive loads of potatoes and carrots and some other vegetables. Sometimes its even difficult for me and hubby to eat them all. If only my sister lives near me, I could share with her.

This is an easy dish , definitely not japanese. Italian maybe ??
If you wanna try here is the recipe.

Ingredients :

eggplants ( slice into bite pieces )
tomatoes ( big slices)
chicken ( small bite pieces )
onions ( sliced )
olive oil
soy sauce

how to :

* In a skillet, pour enough of the oil and saute chicken until a little brown.
* Add the onions , saute until onions are slightly cooked.
* Now add the eggplants , stir well. Pour a little bit of water , cover the pan and simmer for a few minutes until eggplants are soft.
* Lastly add the tomatoes , season with salt and pepper to taste. And drizzle a small amount of the soy sauce. Sprinkle with dried basil and serve .

Note : You can use garlic too, I just skipped it coz my hubby dont like garlic much!

oh, you just gave me an idea on what to fix for dinner! My eggplant has finally started putting out, so I have plenty of eggplant and tomatoes from the garden. Aren't homegrown veggies just wonderful?
