      This was so GOOD! I didn't use the 5 spice because (1) I didn't have any and (2) I somehow overlooked that bit. Still, this was very delicious. I used my George Foreman grill to cook the eggplant and it worked great. I think next time I'll slice the eggplant a bit thicker though. I'm thinking this would be nice on fish as well.

      I have now cooked this recipe about 4 times and I LOVE it! I have used white and awase(mix of red and white) miso and both turned out really well. I find that if I put the lid on my frypan when I'm cooking the eggplant before adding the miso it draws out more of the bitterness. I also use brown sugar and serving with spring onions is a MUST for me! Thanks so much!
