Miso-Garlic Broiled Eggplant

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by kittycatmom

Every year I plant Japanese eggplant in my garden... my favorite way to eat it is simply grilled, then sliced with soy sauce and ground roasted sesame seeds. I was overwhelmed with eggplant last season, and had to "branch" out to other methods. This is a recipe my Japanese mom taught me. Make subsitutions at your own risk! :) I can only tell you this is great as written!!!

These were different and interesting and good! I used regular eggplant and white miso. I put them in the broiler and walked off for a moment and they burned a little, but still good. Thanks! Made for PRMR.
