Sticky Miso Aubergines - 125 calories

You may spot from the pictures that I forgot to add the sliced spring onions!

Preparation Time: 20 mins

Cooking Time: 50 mins

Serves: 2

Calories per serving: 124.8

Ingredients

1 x Aubergine, Raw - 300g

Toasted Sesame Oil - 1 Tbsp/15g

Soup, Miso, Paste, Sachets - 1 Sachet/18g

Spring Onions - 4 Servings/16g

Honey, Clear - 15g

Method

Heat the oven to 180ºC/356ºF.

Put the sachet of miso paste, 1 tablespoon of honey and table spoon of sesame oil into a bowl. Add a small cup of warm water so the mixture is loose, and mix together.

Halve your aubergines length wise. Score the aubergine flesh, so you end up with diamond cuts across it.

Place aubergines into the dish, cut side up. Pour marinade over aubergines, leave to marinate for 15 minutes.

Cover baking tray with tin foil, and place into the oven for 45 minutes.

N.B. If the aubergines aren't sticky at the end of the stated cooking time (different ovens cook at different speeds), just pour out any excess liquid in the tray and place back into the oven, without foil, for 5-10 minutes. The marinade will then go sticky on the underside of the aubergines.

I liked the idea of the marinade and this was very quick and easy to make. However, decided that we weren't fans of miso flavouring. Perhaps next time we will try soy, chilli, lime, ginger, honey (a combination of those, not necessarily all!)

My go to flavour for aubergine is cumin seeds.

But a soy ginger thing sounda lovely

Ooohhhh I like the sound of cumin! Or how's about paprika? Or garlic... mmmmmm. Definitely going to experiment!

That looks great, I love aubergines! I like miso too, but soy, chilli and ginger sounds great. I'll definitely give this a go.
