Total Time

From the March 2005 issue of Fitness Magazine. Try just a spray of olive oil instead of brushing it on to save on fat. Super quick and easy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat broiler.
  2. Using a sharp knife, lightly score eggplant flesh in a criss-cross pattern.
  3. Arrange the eggplant skin side up in a single layer on a non-stick broiler pan.
  4. Lightly brush with half the oil; broil 4 inches away from heat source for 3 minutes or until dimpled but not charred.
  5. Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine soy sauce, sugar and mirin.
  6. Turn eggplant slices over and brush with remaining oil; broil 1 minute.
  7. Brush with soy sauce mixture; broil 1 more minute more until eggplant is tender when it's pierced with a knife.
  8. Sprinkle with scallions before serving.
