I got this neato green eggplant-shaped veggie at the Farmer’s Market today. I think the sign said “Opa” but in this case Google was not my friend and couldn’t tell me what it was. I’m a regular at this market so the nice farmer let me have one on the house.
So we had some pork in the fridge and I did a stir-fry of the two. The veggie has the texture of a Chinese “Si Gua”. Sorry, I don’t know the English translation. It’s very light and somewhat soggy. Almost like cooked cucumber. It paired well with the pork for a clean and healthy stir-fry.
