Miso and Honey Marinated Roast Aubergine

Make your veggies exciting with miso. By marinating aubergines in umami-rich hatcho miso paste and sweet honey, and then roasting them slowly in the oven, you allow the aubergines to absorb the sweet and savoury flavours of the marinade. This makes them deliciously sweet and sticky as well as full of umami flavour. A delicious must-try for lovers of roasted vegetables.


1 aubergine, small, or 2 Asian eggplants
2 tbsp of groundnut oil

hatcho miso marinade:
1 tbsp of hatcho miso paste
1 tbsp of runny honey
1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil
5 tbsp of hot water

to serve:
1 tbsp of sesame seeds
1 spring onion, finely chopped

20+ best aubergine recipes

There are so many ways to cook aubergines, from a delicious curry to a summery salad. These are our favourite aubergine recipes.

From curries to slow cooker stews aubergines are a great ingredient and become meltingly tender when roasted in the oven. If thinly sliced and grilled they can also be wonderfully crispy.

We particularly love a slow cooker curry and recommend our slow cooker aubergine and sweet potato jalfrezi. If you're looking for something easier how about our quick miso aubergines with spring green rice.

There is some prep to get this recipe into the slow cooker, but once it&rsquos on it all comes together in delicious melting cheesiness. If you&rsquod like added protein, serve alongside a piece of grilled chicken or fried firm tofu.

This spicy curry is packed full of flavour and goodness. To further elevate the curry, stir though spinach towards the end of cooking, and finish with coconut yogurt, if you like.

This vegan-friendly centrepiece is super simple but looks oh-so impressive served up on a platter.

The name of this seductive dish, Imam Bayildi, means &lsquoThe Priest Fainted&rsquo &ndash most likely at the richness of it!

This filling curry will please veggies and meat eaters alike.

Traditional lasagne involves a lengthy round of sauce-making and assembly. However, ready-made sauces and a jar of grilled aubergines make this lasagne recipe quick and easy to whip up.

3 large aubergines (400g each)
3 onions
6 cloves of garlic
1 bunch (30g) fresh sage
olive oil
1 tsp dried chilli flakes
1 lemon
2 x 400g tins quality plum tomatoes
80g mature Cheddar cheese
80g Parmesan cheese
300g fresh lasagne sheets
50g blanched almonds

Place a large shallow casserole pan on a medium heat with 250ml of water. Halve the aubergines lengthways and place in the pan. Peel, quarter and add the onions, then cover with a lid and cook for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, peel and finely slice the garlic, and pick the sage leaves. Preheat the oven to 200ºC/400ºF/gas 6.

Remove the lid, and once most of the liquid has cooked away, make a well in the middle. Add 3 tablespoons of oil, the garlic, chilli flakes and most of the sage leaves, then finely grate in the lemon zest. Once golden, scrunch in the tomatoes, pour in 2 tins’ worth of water, and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove the pan from the heat, grate in the cheeses, then season to absolute perfection with sea salt and black pepper. Tear in the pasta sheets and mix up really well to coat and separate, then pull some of the sheets to the top to create a top layer. Bash the almonds until fine and rub the remaining sage leaves with oil, then sprinkle on top. Use the back of a spoon to create some dips and wells, and bake for 25 minutes, or until golden and bubbling.

I love this served with a big crunchy green salad dressed with balsamic vinegar.

Two of my girls are gluten-intolerant, so I often turn this into a pasta bake by using gluten-free pasta. Feel free to use any pasta shape. Simply parboil before adding.

To make vegetarian: swap Parmesan for vegetarian hard cheese.

Ingredients of Baked Potatoes and Aubergines

  • 2 sliced long aubergines
  • 150 gm mozzarella
  • 3 tablespoon virgin olive oil
  • 1 sliced onion
  • 2 tablespoon bread crumbs
  • 3 tablespoon parsley
  • black pepper as required
  • 500 gm potato
  • 2 clove chopped garlic
  • 250 gm finely chopped tomato
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 2 tablespoon parmesan cheese
  • salt as required

How to make Baked Potatoes and Aubergines

Step 1 Prepare the tomato sauce

To make the tomato sauce, add butter and garlic in a pan. When the garlic turns golden, add the tomatoes and fry until soft and mushy. Put the seasoning and stir until it becomes sauce-like on medium-low flame.

Step 2 Season the sliced aubergine and onion with herbed butter

Toss the onion and aubergine slices in hot oil until seared on both sides. Remove from the flame and put the slices in a plate. Now, create a seasoning of garlic, seasoning, herbs and butter. Coat the aubergine and onions in this seasoning, mix well and keep aside.

Step 3 Bake for 40 minutes

Put half of the tomato sauce in an oiled baking tray. Arrange potato slices and top with some aubergine mixture. Repeat the process by creating layers of potatoes, aubergines and tomato sauce. Cover the top with breadcrumbs and parmesan. Spread the mozzarella cheese and bake it in the oven for 40 minutes at 200 degrees.

T his is very loosely based on an Israeli sandwich called sabich – I’ve taken certain components and made it into a warm salad. You get more of the amba sauce than you need, but it’s delicious with lots of other things, even just plain griddled chicken. Serve the sauce at the table so people can add more. My amba sauce is not authentic, I just make it as I can in my own kitchen. In Israel it is often made with salted mangoes. To make ‘jammy’ eggs – hard-boiled but with a little softness in the centre – boil for 8 minutes. Put into cold water until just cooled.

Prep time: 20 minutes | Cooking time: 30 minutes


  • 1kg (2lb 4oz) aubergines, cut into 2.5cm cubes
  • 2 tbsp salt
  • 150ml sunflower oil

  • 4 garlic gloves, finely chopped
  • 3 medium red chillies, de-seeeded and finely chopped
  • 50g (2oz) root ginger, peeled and finely chopped

  • 2 tsp coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp fenugreek seeds
  • 2 tsp black mustard seeds
  • 2 tbsp taramind pastes dissolved in 3 tbsp boiling water and strained
  • 150g soft light brown sugar

This tempting recipe for lamb-stuffed aubergines in sweet-and-sour sauce from the cookbook A Taste of Israel by Nida Degutienė is one of many versions Israeli home cooks have adapted from traditional aubergine-based recipes.



Slice the aubergines lengthwise, then carefully make several incisions in the flesh. Brush with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Arrange them in a baking dish, flesh side up. Bake for about 20 minutes.

To make the seasoning, mix together all the ingredients.

In a large pan, heat 3 to 4 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the onion and cook over a medium heat, stirring. After 4 to 5 minutes, when the onion is soft, add half of the prepared seasoning mix and cook until the onion begins to brown. Add the pine nuts and fry with the onions for a minute or so. Add the lamb and tomato paste and sugar. Season with the parsley, chilli flakes, salt and black pepper. Fry for about 10 minutes over a low heat, stirring, until the meat is cooked and starts to dry.

Remove the aubergines from the oven. Using a spoon, press a spoonful or two of the stuffing firmly into the flesh of the aubergine.

To prepare the sauce, mix the wine or water with the lemon juice, honey, sugar, salt and cinnamon. Stir in the remaining seasoning mix. Pour the sauce into the baking dish with the stuffed aubergines. Cover with aluminium foil and place in the oven. Reduce the temperature to 180°C and bake for 45 minutes.

Remove the aubergines from the oven and drizzle with some of the sauce at the bottom of the baking dish. Cover again with the foil and return to the oven for another 20 minutes. If the sauce has reduced too much, add about half a cup of water. After 20 minutes, remove the foil and once again drizzle the aubergines with the sauce. Return to the oven and bake, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until browned.

Serve the aubergines garnished with chopped parsley, covered in sauce, and with white bread, rice or couscous on the side.
