Miso glazed eggplant

Updated: Aug 27

I’d say hands down my favourite veg would be eggplant.

With it’s meaty like texture you can do all most anything with it.


A birthday treat to myself was miso glazed eggplant. A dish I have never listed on our menus but one that has an amazing flavour.


Yes miso can be powerful but combined and used in the correct way, it’s a game changer.




Ingredients

  • 1 large eggplant

  • 80 g white miso paste (shiro miso)

  • 2 tbsp mirin

  • 1 tbsp Shaoxing wine (rice wine)

  • 1 tbsp sesame oil

  • 2 tsp soy sauce

  • 1 tsp finely grated ginger

Garnish

fried shallots, black and white sesame seeds, can be served with steamed rice






Instructions 1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. 2. Cut the eggplants in half lengthwise. Using a sharp knife, score a diamond pattern in flesh of each eggplant half. 3. Meanwhile, place the remaining ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stirring continuously, simmer until all has emerged as a smooth paste. Remove from the heat and set aside. 4. Using a pastry brush, generously brush the miso sauce over the cut-side of the eggplants. Bake for 30-45 minutes or until light golden. 5. Scatter with fried shallots and sesame seeds and serve hot with steamed rice.
