This dish is a great way to add some excitement to your eggplant! The sweet and savory glaze pairs perfectly with the eggplant, and the dish can be served as a side or a main. With just a few simple ingredients, this dish is easy to make and sure to please.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large eggplant, sliced into rounds
  • 3 tablespoons white miso paste
  • 3 tablespoons mirin
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together miso paste, mirin, sugar, vegetable oil, and salt.
  3. Place eggplant rounds on a baking sheet, and spread miso mixture over the top.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Turn on the broiler, and broil for 2 minutes, or until the top is browned.

Description:

These eggplant rounds are roasted until tender, then glazed with a sweet and savory miso mixture. The eggplant is delicious on its own, or paired with rice and other vegetables.

Potential Changes & Improvements:

If you want a slightly sweeter dish, you can increase the sugar to 1 1/2 tablespoons. For a spicier dish, add a pinch of red pepper flakes to the miso mixture. You could also add other vegetables to the dish, such as zucchini or bell peppers.

What Other Food It Works Well With:

This dish goes well with rice and other vegetables. Try it with steamed broccoli or roasted sweet potatoes.

Common Mistakes:

Be sure to whisk the miso mixture well before spreading it over the eggplant. This will ensure that the flavors are well-distributed. It’s also important not to overcook the eggplant, or it will be mushy.
