Fairy Tale Eggplant and Mushroom Stir Fry

Have you ever heard of fairy tale eggplants? Even as an avid farmer and gardener, I hadn’t seen this adorable twist on one of my favorite summer vegetables. Fairy Tale Eggplants are long, tiny versions of eggplant with a rich purple color. They are delicate, sweet, tasty and perfect for stir fry!



10 Chopped fairytale eggplants

Two cups of Brussels sprouts

1 can of chopped mushrooms

3 handfuls of regular mushrooms-We found some awesome ones which were locally foraged and tasted lightly like shrimp

2 cups of water

½ a cup of soy sauce

2 ounces of shelled edamame

Crushed red chili peppers

A Handful of sesame seeds

Heat the oil in a large pan and add crushed chili peppers and chopped vegetables. Leave the mushrooms for last.

Sautee the vegetables until soft

Add the water and cook for a bit longer

Then add soy sauce and mushrooms.

Add the sesame seeds and cook until the water is mostly evaporated.

Serve with a side of rice, chicken or whatever you’d like!
