  • 1 large aubergine
  • 50 g white miso paste
  • 4 tsp honey
  • 2 tsp sesame oil


  • Mix the miso, honey and sesame oil in a bowl. Add a small amount of boiling water, just enough to dissolve all of the ingredients and mix into a smooth liquid. Set aside.
  • Slice the aubergine in half. Then, take a knife and slice the flesh diagonally making a cross pattern without piercing through the skin.
  • Pour the liquid into a flat bottomed bowl or similar. Lay the aubergine halves flesh down into the bowl. Clingfilm and place back in the fridge ideally overnight for the aubergine to soak up as much of the liquid as possible.
  • Preheat your oven to 180°C. Take the aubergine out of the fridge and place flesh up on a baking tray on top of a large piece of tin foil. Wrap the aubergine like a parcel and cook in the oven for 40 minutes.
  • Take the tray out of the oven, open up the parcel and pour on the spare liquid. Put back in the oven with the flesh exposed for another 35 minutes or until it smells so good you can’t resist eating it.
