Grilled Eggplants with Miso

Eggplants, some call it Aubergine and the locals here call it Brinjal. It comes in all shapes and sizes. These I got from the market are really the shape of an large egg. See how they sit nicely in the spoon? They are cute!

I'm not a fan of this purple veggi neither is it a favourite among my family, except maybe for my father. I thought maybe if I cook it a little different, they would perhaps accept it. Well, I guess not. So, you won't be seeing much of veg here.

  • Eggplant, cut into half
  • Miso Paste
  • Oil
How to do it:
  1. Spread miso paste thinly on the eggplant.
  2. Brush oil lightly on the skin of the eggplant.
  3. Grill on medium heat till cook.
  4. Sprinkle spring onions and bonito flasks on top.
  5. Serve.
If you want your eggplant to be more 'juicy', soak it in water for a minute and drain before using.
