    I’m very happy to share an exciting news today!  For the past several months, I’ve been working closely with a Japanese miso company called Hikari Miso.  I developed new recipes using their products and today I want to share my first recipe that I made for Hikari Miso – Miso Glazed Eggplant.

    Miso Glazed Eggplant – Elegant Veggie Entrée or Side Dish

    If you have a love for eggplant, this recipe is easily one of the simplest and delicious ways to prepare the nightshade fruit. You can use either Japanese or Chinese eggplants that come in long slender body. Slice the eggplants in boat-like halves and then give them a few scores to absorb the umami miso mixture. To bake, pop them right into the oven under broil setting, and voila, you’d have a somewhat caramelized crispy exterior and creamy interior. The flavor is sweet, salty and savory. It’s so good that any vegetarian will take delight in this eggplant dish!

    Serve this Miso Glazed Eggplant as an entrée or side dish for upcoming July 4th holiday.  Using the convenient Hikari Miso’s Minute Miso Organic (Original), the dish is done in 15 minutes.

    I am very fortunate that I get to work with Hikari Miso because I have been using their products for the past 7 years.  After having our first baby (he’s now seven years old), my husband and I started to eat at home more often.  Every week we would have miso soup 3-4 times so I have tried many miso products out there.  I was happy I found Hikari Miso and thought it’s one of the best miso products  I’ve tasted.  Ever since then, I’ve been using their miso consistently.  It’s been really fun to experiment new recipes using different kinds of miso that Hikari Miso offers.

    If you are interested in Hikari Miso products, you might find them at your nearest Asian/Japanese supermarkets (for readers in the Bay Area, Nijiya Market carries their products).  Hikari Miso products are now available on Amazon.

    Note: The consistency of Minute Miso is more liquid than typical miso.  If you cannot find Minute Miso – Sweet, you can substitute with 1 Tbsp. miso paste (awase miso or white miso) and 1 Tbsp. dashi stock for 2 Tbsp. Hikari Miso’s Minute Miso.
