Make-Ahead Sweet and Sour Stir-Fried Eggplant with Snap Peas and Basil

I cut the eggplant in relatively large chunks, to highlight their flavor and texture. Make sure they get really nice and soft and are completely cooked all the way through. Red or brown rice adds nice, complex flavor, but given that this is very much a thrown-together-from-the-pantry type dish, any grain (or accompanying vegetable) will do.
