Adobo is a Filipino dish of meat, veggies, or seafood cooked in a marinade of vinegar, soy sauce, bay leaves, garlic, and peppercorns. It is often made with chicken or pork, but I’ve used eggplant for this vegan version and it’s so flavourful! I created this dish as part of a Filipino spread, which also included Chicken Inasal, a Filipino barbecue chicken dish, but the eggplant was the star of the show. This recipe would also work really well with the addition of pork belly or ground pork.
Enjoy this dish with some fluffy white rice and some extra adobo sauce.
