  • 2 medium aubergines
  • 4 tsp white miso paste
  • 2 tsp runny honey
  • 1 tbsp Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • Thumb-sized piece root ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 4 spring onions, shredded
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds


Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Slice the aubergines in half length-ways and score the flesh in a diamond pattern, taking care not to cut through the skin. Line a baking sheet with grease-proof paper and lay the aubergines on top, cut sides up.

Mix the miso, honey, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger and garlic with 2-3 tablespoons of water to make a smooth paste. Brush over the aubergine flesh and roast for 20 minutes until golden brown and soft. Sprinkle with the spring onions and sesame seeds, then serve.
