Ingredients

Aubergine steaks
  • 1 aubergine
  • Salt
Glaze (for one aubergine – double up if necessary)
  • 1 tsp red miso
  • 1 tsp syrup eg agave or maple etc
  • 2 tsp mirin rice wine
  • 1 tsp soy sauce use Tamari if GF
  • 2 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • Optional serving suggestions: sweet potato wedges tofu skewers, brown rice or other grains, green salad

Instructions

  • Slice each aubergine into cicular steaks, about 2cm thick. You can also slice them lengthways but make sure they are flat to aid thorough cooking.
  • Sprinkle the aubergine slices with a little salt, on both sides, then leave to sit while you prep the other ingredients.
  • Mix up the glaze until fully combined and set aside. Prepare any optional side dishes now.
  • With a sharp knife, make slight criss-cross patterns across each side of the aubergine steaks.
  • Brush the glaze generously over both sides of each steak, leaving a little to brush on just before serving.
  • Place on a red-hot BBQ or well-oiled griddle for a few minutes per side. Aim to caramelise the steak without burning it. You want the aubergine to soften without being too mushy.
  • Once softened and nicely charred, brush the aubergine steaks with the remaining glaze. Add chilli flakes and fresh parsley if desired.
