Super Fast Baked Long Beans with Brinjals (Egg plants) Recipe

Merryn’s son Ethan loves brinjals (eggplant) and she wanted to try out some new brinjal recipes. So I am posting this recipe on her request. This is super fast and non hassle way of cooking brinjals. The best thing is you won’t get oil all over your kitchen and you can do something else while the brinjals are cooking in your oven. Basically the ingredients are the same as the fried augergine recipe that I posted some time ago but this is a quicker way of cooking it. Instead of frying the brinjals and long beans, I just wrapped the up using aluminium foil and bake it in the oven!

Brinjals (eggplants), 2 pcs, cut into bite size
Long Beans, 3 pcs, cut into one inch length
Oyster sauce, 1 tablespoon
Dark soya sauce, 1 teaspoon
Light soya sauce, 1 teaspoon
Sugar, a dash
Salt to taste
Dried prawns, 1 tablespoon or minced meat with a little fat, 100 gms
Garlic, 5 cloves, chopped finely
Olive oil, 2 tablespoons
(You can throw in some sambal belachan into the dish too!)

 Put all the ingredients in an aluminium foil and add a little water. Seal up the aluminium foil tightly so that the steam would not escape. Bake the brinjals in oven at 200 Dec C for 10 to 15 minutes. Serve with white rice.

I am not fond of brinjals! Dun mind the long beans though : )

Christine said...

ok I'm trying this, thanks

Alice Law said...

Oh dear, that's so sweet of you! I hope he is getting better by now, heard he was sick.

I love brinjal too, but I hardly get the smooth texture whenever I try to cook it... it normally turns out hard in the center. Shall I boil it or steam it before I cook the brinjal?!

Please enjoy your weekend!

Brinjal with long beans? Ah they have the four-bean combo at restaurants and some places add brinjal as well. Very nice, very popular.

Thank you again Pete. You are a gem :)

brinjals sometimes have a 'biting' taste on the tongue. need to boil it with salt or something?

Lyndsey : ha ha, speed, I am speed just like movie Cars...LOL!

Foongpc : Brinjals nice leh...try the one at Esquire Kitchen

Christine : Thk, let me know how it turn out. Cheers

Alice : You can rub it with some oil and baked it first before cooking. Or just fry them in oil first. They will be smooth and soft for your dish.

Manglish : Agree, very healthy way of cooking.

STP : Ahhh, four beans combo, nice dish!

Merryn : Welcome, hope Ethan like this simple dish.

Tuti : Can boil it first also but better if rub some oil and bake it first before cooking.
