Recipe of the Month – Miso Glazed Eggplant

Recipe of the Month – Miso Glazed Eggplant from

Starting from 2015, I’d like to share one recipe that ties into our monthly theme – Embrace New Beginnings.

There are tons of good and professional cooking websites out there, so what I’ll do is I’ll choose a recipe from one of these sites, try and test it myself first to see if the recipe works (for amateur cooks like me), and viola – share their amazing recipe and website to everyone here.

This website “Just One Cookbook” by Nami is one of my all time favorites. It has lots of easy-to-make Japanese recipes (and sometimes other type of cuisines too), and all the recipes I tried from her site were amazingly delicious! Definitely two thumbs up!

To confess, I haven’t tried this recipe yet, but I did try her other eggplant recipe with ponzu sauce and it was super yummy (along with so many other recipes).

The reason why I decide to choose this recipe is because of MISO!

Miso is one of my favorite fermented foods, and for more information on why fermented food is good for you, please see:

Fermented food includes kefir, yogurt, kombucha, miso, and kimchi, and they provide natural probiotics to aid our digestive system. If you are really interested in fermented food, I found a really good website called: that has a lot of good information and also sells starter kits to make your own fermented food.

Thank you Nami for all your wonderful recipes. Enjoy cooking!

    I’ve never thought of using Asian flavours with eggplant — I’m used to making middle eastern dips and casserole dishes out of it. This is so inventive. Thanks for sharing this, looks so yummy. Looking forward to trying it. Do you think it would work well with some salmon fillets as a dinner meal?

      Hello there, yes definitely miso works great with salmon and chicken. has a lot of Japanese recipes with miso, such as miso soup, miso-glazed salmon and grilled chicken with miso. We also use miso as a vegetable dip at Museflower Retreat & Spa for our guests, you can mix it with garlic, lime juice, and chili (depend how spicy you’d like it). Enjoy!
