Miso Roasted Eggplant

About This Recipe:

One of my favorite appetizers at Japanese restaurants is miso roasted eggplant. It’s super savory, soft in texture, and topped with tons of scallions and sesame seeds. All I need with this eggplant is a huge bowl of jasmine rice, and maybe some Ito En tea to wash it all down with (*not sponsored.) This is a vegan friendly recipe, and would make a great appetizer or a healthy dinner entrée. And 30 minutes is all it takes!

-1 tbl water
-2 tsps sesame oil
-2 tsps soy sauce
