Nasu-Miso-Dengaku (Grilled Eggplant with Sweet Miso Glaze)
Dengaku is a traditional Japanese dish with grilled ingredients, such as tofu, Konjaku or some vegetables, brushed with sweet miso glaze. Among different Dengaku variations, Nasu-Miso-Dengaku (Eggplant Dengaku) would probably be the most popular. The silky and melt-in-your-mouse texture of the grilled/pan-fried eggplant and the sweet and savoury rich miso glaze complement each other to be a perfectly satisfying dish! The good news is, such a delicious and satisfying dish happens to be vegetarian, as a lot of traditional Japanese dishes are.
