Ingredients

  • 8 small long eggplants
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 120ml mirin
  • 2 tbsp yellow miso paste
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp roasted sesame seeds

Method

Preheat oven to 180C. Cut eggplants in half lengthways and score the cut sides. Place in a baking dish and brush with a little oil. Cover with foil and bake for 40 minutes until eggplant is very soft.

Mix mirin, miso paste and sugar in a small saucepan over low heat for three to four minutes until combined.

Drizzle dressing over eggplants and cook in oven for a further five minutes, or until dressing starts to caramelise. Scatter over sesame seeds and serve. Extra dressing can be refrigerated in a covered container for up to two weeks.
