Yakiniku-Glassed Eggplant with Shishito Peppers and Ginger-Lime Cashews lowrez

For those vegetarians amongst us. I’m not one of you but this dish is for you. I don’t eat that much meat. Humans evolved to be omnivores and I’m one. What meat I do eat does not go through the usual commercial meat network. It is what I call ethical food.

For example, chickens are free range and vegetarian fed even the beef (Which I eat only once a month.) is all grass fed and does not go through the feed lots and have hormones and other chemicals added.
