Honey, miso & soy aubergine with yogurt & coriander
I created this recipe when I had a big group of girlfriends to feed, almost half of them being vegetarians. It was served in a massive dish with serving spoons for everyone to help themselves, but would also work wonderfully as a plated dish. The key to this dish is cooking the aubergines for a long time. I’d also suggest serving with some Little Gem lettuce and cucumbers – it’s rich and punchy, so it pairs well with a refreshing leaf on the side.
4 tbsp honey
6 tbsp red miso paste
3 tbsp soy sauce
3 tbsp vegetable oil
300g natural yogurt
30g chopped coriander
30g crispy fried onions
1 red chili, deseeded and thinly sliced tsp pul biber (see tip, right)
1 Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/ gas 6.
2 Quarter the aubergines lengthways and put on a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Combine the honey, miso paste, soy sauce, and oil in a bowl with some black pepper, then pour over the aubergines and rub the mixture in with your hands.
3 Roast on the top shelf of the oven for 1 hr, turning and basting three times. If the aubergines start to color too much, cover with an upside-down baking sheet. You want them to get a deep caramelisation though, so don’t worry too much.
4 Meanwhile, season the yogurt with a pinch each of salt and pepper and spread over a large serving dish.
