"This eggplant recipe is Asian inspired. The miso is tasty and the chili flakes add some delicious spiciness. But the best is the soft texture of the eggplants! Few ingredients and a success."

Recipe Card


  • 1 large eggplant
  • 1 tablespoon miso
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili flakes
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons water


  • Step 1

    If you have the time, start by disgorging the eggplants. Rinse the eggplant and cut it into several pieces in the lengths. Place them on a baking sheet (or big plate) and salt them. Let them for an hour. Then, with paper towel remove the excess of water.

  • Step 2

    In a bowl, mix all the ingredients, except the eggplant. With a kitchen brush, add the miso marinade on the eggplant pieces on both sides and place them on a baking sheet with parchment paper. Let it for 10 minutes. Then, place in the oven for 20-30 minutes (depends if you prefer crispy or soft) at 400°F.
