Spicy Miso Braised Eggplant

Previous
Next

I’m going out on a limb guys – I reckon this is THE best eggplant dish I know. It’s just so silky, tender and rich, with a perfect hit of chilli to tie it all together. If you’re looking to master a meat-free dish or a vegetable side, then look no further.

SPICY MISO BRAISED EGGPLANT

PREP TIME

10 minutes
COOK TIME

20 minutes + draining
SERVES

4
Ingredients

3 small (about 200g/7 oz each) eggplant, trimmed and cut into wedges

2 tbsp vegetable oil

2 tbsp miso paste

2 tbsp soy sauce

1 tbsp white vinegar

½ cup beef or vegetable stock

2 tsp sugar

1 tbsp finely grated ginger

3 garlic cloves, finely grated

½ tsp cornflour (cornstarch) mixed with 1 tbsp water

finely chopped spring onion (scallions) to serve

chilli oil to serve (try my homemade Chilli Oil recipe)

sea salt

Steps

Step 1

Liberally salt the eggplant wedges and leave them to drain in a colander for about 30 minutes.

Step 2

In the meantime, in a bowl, mix together the miso paste, soy sauce, vinegar, beef stock, sugar, ginger and garlic.

Step 3

Drain the eggplant on paper towel and squeeze with extra paper towel to dry off the eggplant as much as possible.

Step 4

Heat the vegetable oil in a medium heavy-based saucepan over medium-high heat. Add a half of the eggplant and sear for 2-3 minutes on each side. Then pile them up in one side of the pan and add the other half of the eggplant and sear those. Then mix all the eggplant pieces together. Pour over the sauce. Cover with a lid, turn the heat down to medium and simmer for 10 minutes.

Step 5

Stir through the cornflour mixture. Simmer for another minute to allow the sauce to thicken. Transfer to a serving plate. Drizzle with chilli oil and sprinkle with the spring onion.

Delicious and easy

My family totally enjoyed this eggplant. I had so much eggplant that I generously doubled it. Not one speck was left. I always make a handwritten copy of recipes I really don’t want to lose (terrible internet where I live) , and this is one of them.

Easy and Delicious

I only ever ordered braised eggplant when dining out because I thought it was really hard to achieve but no, Marion has changed my ways. Now I can have braised eggplant on regular rotation with this simple, delicious recipe. Thank you, Marion.
