Hello Pimienta, what a lovely tasting dish! Thank you so much for posting it! Went to a friends house and since she knows I love eggplant she made it this way, as a surprise. I enjoyed the freshness of the soy, miso and ginger(Ana did not use the basil, as she knows I don't like it)it was delicious anyway!! We made a meal of it with some Thai-inspired cellophane noodles, very impressive. Again, thank you, Diane :=)

Delicious and sooo simple, Pimienta. Makes a beautiful plate. We thought it was perfect with Spicy Peanut Noodles #160976.
