Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add 1 cubed Japanese eggplant and 3 smashed garlic cloves; stir-fry until tender, about 5 minutes. Add 1 pint grape tomatoes and cook until softened, about 5 more minutes. Season with salt and a pinch of sugar. Top with a handful of chopped cilantro.
