Asian inspired eggplant recipe with miso paste and chili flakes.



  • 1 big eggplant
  • 1 tbsp miso paste
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp chili flakes
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 12 tbsp water


  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.
  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.
