Miso-glazed aubergine with pickled radish and sesame seeds

BARBECUE / MAIN DISH / MEAT & GAME / THREE WAYS WITH / VEGETABLES / SUMMER

A real favourite on our Vegetarian bbq course this delicious recipe hails from japan “Nasu Dengaku” and can be made in the oven but will not have the same smoky tones that you achieve on the barbecue. The pickled radish is a good foil to the sweet, charred aubergine and works with many other vegetables too!
