Quick meal: 7-minute BBQ eggplant

How do people in China cook eggplant? Fry it? Cook it in the soup? My family fry it, deep-fry it, and they sometimes cook it in the soup. However, my favorite eggplant is in the barbecue restaurant  on the corner outside of my high school in Quanzhou. 

A couple of months ago, I found how to cook eggplant using a microwave and have the same barbecue flavor. And it only take seven minutes!

First of all, get a eggplant:) Wash it but don't cut it.

Put the whole eggplant into the microwave. Click 3 for three minutes.

In three minutes, we can make the sauce. Cut the garlics and add soy sauce on them.

Take out the eggplant. Cut it into halves.
