Serves: 4-6
  • 2 small to medium eggplants, cut into ½ inch slices
  • Vegetable oil for brushing
  • Kosher salt
  • Fresh pepper
  • ¼ cup white miso
  • 4 teaspoons grated ginger
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • Toasted sesame seeds (for garnish)
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the miso and the next 5 ingredients. Stir in 2 teaspoons water to loosen a little.
  2. Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Generously brush both sides of eggplant slices with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place on grill, and cook until softened and brown, 5 - 6 minutes. Flip eggplant slices, and cook until browned on bottom.
  3. Smear top of eggplant slices with a thin layer of miso sauce and cook 1 minute longer. Remove to a serving platter, sprinkle with sesame seeds, and drizzle any extra miso sauce on top.
