It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with Aubergine and if I was vegan or veggie I’d probably get through at least 5 a week. Here is a lovely fusion of flavours incorporating tahini with miso. Have you tried this combination? If not then you absolutely must. The dressing/marinade is gorgeous and after making it once you’ll doing so again soon.
Allow 1 half per person as a side
Marinade / Dressing
3 teaspoons white miso paste
3 tablespoons Tahini
2 tablespoons sesame oil
Juice 1 lime
2 cloves garlic - crushed
Lime to loosen the dressing
Pre heat the oven to 200 degrees.
Mix the marinade ingredients together and set aside.
Half each Aubergine and score a lattice into the flat surface. Smear with a teaspoon of marinade on each half and season generously. Cover with foil and roast for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and roast for a further 20-30 minutes or until golden.
Loosen the dressing with a little lime juice if too thick. Drizzle the Aubergines with the dressing. Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds and coriander.
