2 red bell peppers, sliced thinly
1 cups snow (Chinese) peas
5 green onions, cut on a bias in 1 inch long pieces

1/4 cup soy (shoyu) sauce

Heat wok or large nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Heat the peanut oil until just starting to smoke then add eggplant and peppers.  Cook for 4 minutes, until softened, then add the snow peas and green onions.  Dissolve the sugar in the soy sauce and add to pan.  Cook for 2 minutes, add sesame oil and serve over steamed rice.
