Miso Aubergine (vegan)

Recipe Description:

Miso is a protein-rich paste full of complex aromas and savory, salty flavour. Every miso starts with a combination of soybeans and koji, an aged rice that begins the fermenting process, but brewing it is a Japanese artform with as many nuances and variables (time, temperature, added grains, technique) as winemaking. Next to miso soup, there’s perhaps no better way to really taste a good miso than nasu dengaku, a simple miso-glazed aubergine recipe from the countryside around Kyoto. We’ve chosen a balanced, earthy miso here, complementing the buttery aubergine and sweet, lightly pickled cucumber alike.
