Miso & Matcha Roasted Aubergine - Recipe

aubergine and miso recipe
I think it is so easy to get stuck in a rut when it comes to preparing vegetables. We find a route that we like and due to time restraints or habit we stick with it. This year I have been making a concerted effort to break out of my comfort zone when it comes to vegetables, (yes I am fully aware aubergines are a fruit). Just because something is a side dish it does not mean it has to blend into the background. I hate when you get served up a plate of vegetables that have just been boiled to within an inch of their life, not cool guys, not cool.
side dish recipe aubergine green matcha
you will need;

1 large aubergine 
1tbsp red miso paste
1tsp green matcha powder
1tbsp mirin
1tbsp coconut oil
1tsp sesame seeds

method;
  1. In a large bowl mix the miso, matcha, mirin and oil into a cohesive paste and set aside.
  2. Cut the top off your aubergine and then slice it in half lengthways. Then cut your aubergine into long wedges. I managed to get 6 from each half.
  3. Place the cut 'wedges' into the miso mixture and make sure they are covered. 
  4. Leave them to marinade for about an hour or two, see how precise I am. Then roast them in a preheated oven at 200C for approximately 30-40 minutes depending on how effective your oven is. They should be soft but chard on the outside. They are delicious served hot, cold or warm.
  5. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds before serving. Enjoy!
