I think eggplant is one of the vegetables I can just never get enough of.  There is something about its mild flavour and its soft texture that I just go wild for!

I used to be intimidated by cooking eggplant, and by intimidated I mean turned off a bit because of all that salting and waiting I thought you had to do to it so it didn’t taste bitter.  Turns out, you don’t have to salt eggplant before cooking it, you just may want to if it’s been sitting around for a while and seen better days, or you want to optimize the texture of it when it is fried.  This is good news to me – because I stopped salting it years ago (and have never found it to taste bitter) and I thankfully have had much more eggplant in my life because of that!

How to make miso eggplant

Preheat your oven to 425℉ and spread the eggplant rounds out evenly across a large baking sheet and brush both sides with some olive oil – don’t crowd them or they will just steam instead of roast.

Roast the eggplant for 12-15 minutes turning once about halfway through.  You will know they are ready when they look soft and turned a bit of a golden colour.

While the eggplant rounds are roasting, whisk together the miso, water, lime juice and rice vinegar to make the sauce.

When the eggplant has finished cooking, arrange on a plate and drizzle with the miso sauce.
