Steamed Aubergine with Sweet Miso (Dengaku)

This is usually made by deep frying or grilling, but steaming is healthier...and it works!

Recipe By: KitchenCIB (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/94)
Serves 2 Prep: 10 min Cook: 10 min

Ingredients

Aubergine (large) 1
Vegetable oil 2 tbsp
Miso (red) 2 tbsp
Mirin 1.5 tbsp
Sugar 2 tbsp
Sake (or white wine) 1.5 tbsp
Sesame seeds as required

Method

1
Put all the ingredients from red miso to sake in a pan on medium heat and mix well. Add a touch of water to loosen it if it's too thick.
2
Cut the aubergine into half lengthways. Score around the inside of the skin to make it easier to scoop out. Score a criss cross pattern as well.
3
Put the aubergines in a steamer for 5 minutes. Preheat the oven 180C.
4
Rub some oil on the aubergine surface and spread some sweet miso sauce from Step 1.
5
Put in the oven for 7-8 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with the sesame seeds - they look like aubergine seeds!

Tips & Note

●You need to rub some oil on the aubergine at Step 4 to give it a good flavour but it's optional
