Eggplants. What else can I say about them except that I love to eat them. I had had two in the fridge. I'm still trying to get out of my post-holiday cooking slump. I want to cook something, but I can't think of anything to cook. Why -oh-why? I seriously had ho idea what I wanted to make with these delicious plump eggplants. So I just went the grilled route. Pulled out ol' Georgie for the heck of it. I paired it with a miso ginger glaze. Oh, So good and delicious. Nice and gingery just how I like it. Yum!! Look at those awesome grill marks. I had these with a couple of popovers.
Miso Ginger Glazed Grilled Eggplant
2 medium eggplants
Miso Ginger Glaze
2 Tbsp white miso
1/2 Tbsp grated ginger
1/3 c water
1 tsp granulated sugar
1 tsp rice wine vinegar
Prepare your grill.
Combine all the ingredients of the glaze. Be sure all the sugar has dissolved. Set aside.
Slice the eggplants lengthwise about 1/2-inch thick. When the grill is ready. Place the eggplants down. Baste the top side. Flip after 3-5 minutes. (depending on heat) You'd want some good grill marks. Baste the other side and grill for another 2 minutes.
Rem0ove from the grill. Serve warm.
