Are you thinking about revamping your diet? Perhaps you’re trying to maintain a healthy weight, improve your sense of wellbeing, or you’ve had a cholesterol test and need to change your ways? No matter what your motivation is, eating lots of vegetables is an important part of any healthy, balanced diet – it’s especially true if you’re trying to improve your cholesterol test results, but we should all really be getting our five-a-day.
The trick is to find recipes that put vegetables at the centre of the meal. This tasty Japanese aubergine recipe does just that. It’s a traditional meal, usually eaten when the aubergines are ripest in the middle of summer.
A simple sweet and savoury sauce is mixed from miso paste and spread over the aubergine after cooking for a smoky, intense flavour. Serve with other vegetable dishes and baked tofu for a truly authentic dinner.
