Ok, confession time. I’m not a “natural” cook, so I usually like to follow other people’s recipes. So I was SUPER excited when this meal turned out to be good!! This recipe creation happened as we were in a hurry to leave the house, we didn’t have time to stop for food, and were on our way to a party. If you have a vegan diet too, you will know that showing up at a party without having eaten isn’t the best idea. You may end up starving because there are no vegan options, or slipping up because you don’t want to stand around starving.

So I threw something like this together, we scarfed it down and were out the door. In our scarfing, we were both super impressed with how quickly I made it and how great it tasted! So, I tried it again, making a few changes/additions to make it even better. The eggplant is soft and has a great ginger/soy sauce taste. The spinach has a garlicky taste, but with the spinach flavor still shining through. The rice with rice seasoning is yummy! I really like seaweed with rice, so to me, you can’t go wrong there.
