Have rediscovered my white and black sesame seeds for Savoury Broccoli Cake and Black Noodle Salad made quite recently, I have been scattering it generously over various dishes.
Most recently was when I made Nasu dengaku . Nasu dengaku also known as Miso Aubergine is a Japanese dish. Miso Aubergine seem to be quite popular at the moment and I can uunderstand why they are, but in order to appreciate it, you have to like aubergines. I think what lifts the aubergine to a different level is the miso glaze and its umami flavours that have grown on me, a bit like Marmite.
Sprinkled further with black and White Sesame Seed Miso Glazed Aubergines takes this dish to a different level indeed.
These oven baked Miso Glazed Aubergines were served with a side of steamed white rice, but I must add, some edamame beans would have rounded this dish of perfectly for colour, texture and balance.
Inspired by this Japan Centre and this other recipe for Nasu dengaku. I am sharing this post with Bookmarked Recipes hosted by Tinned Tomatoes.
