    Manami's Note:

    Here is a quick, healthy, vegetarian dish that is a different take on an eggplant dish. Chef Allen Susser of Chef Allen's in Aventura, Fl. glazes it with soy sauce and mirin and sprinkles it with togarashi, a tangerine scented Japanese spice blend of chiles, sesame seeds and dried seaweed. F&W Magazine, 08/2008 edition from 'Green" Living Guide, Local Flavors.Cooking times are estimates. "Togarashi, the Japanese word for “chiles,” is a group of condiments always including chiles that bring out the clean, simple flavors of Japanese food. It works well with fatty foods such as unagi (broiled eel), tempuras, shabu shabu (small bits of food cooked in rich broth), noodle dishes, and yakitori (grilled dishes). Nanami togarashi is a close cousin, with a slightly different proportion of ingredients emphasizing citrus zest.
