Mizo glazed Eggplant
Aubergines are not really in the top 10 in my personal vegetable ranking. Even if there are one or the other recipe in which the egg plant does not perform sooo badly, I actually find the natural own taste quite bland. Luckily, a long time ago, clever people came together and philosophized about the fermentation of soybeans, because shortly afterwards the misopaste was invented, which in combination with sake, butter and garlic, lifts the black tuber to a new level. A truly fantastic spoon dish that really gets the Umamicarousel moving with roasted sesame and fresh spring leeks. This dish is simply prepared super-fast and a real pleasure, especially if the aubergine is still covered with deep toasted aromas. Ideal as a side dish or appetizer.
Ingredients, Miso glazed Eggplant:
|Ingredients for 2 people:|
|2 tbsp||Misopaste (bright)|
|1 tbls. vinegar||Sake|
|2 tbsp toasted||Sesame|
|1 piece||Young leeks|
This is how it is done, Miso glazed Eggplant:
- Halve the aubergines. Use a small knife to scribble the flesh until the skin is peeled. Then the marinade can move in better. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180°.
- Heat a frying pan without grease and toast the eggplant with the cut side down for about 3-4 minutes. It should not burn!
- For the marinade, peel the garlic and process it into a paste together with the miso paste, mirin, sake, butter, sugar and salt in a food processor.
- Now place the aubergines with the topped surface on a sheet and sprinkle generously with the paste.
- Now put the aubergine in the oven for about 15-20 min and in the meantime sprinkle again with the paste.
- After 15-20 minutes, the pulp should be nicely soft.
- To make the aubergine, place on a plate and sprinkle with the toasted sesame. Cut the yellow chilli and early garlic into fine rings and add to them.
