Miso Aubergine Rice Bowl


1 hour (hands on time 20 minutes)

This healthy vegetarian rice bowl uses Nojo’s white miso sauce to give a rich, savoury taste with minimal effort and without lots of different ingredients. Slow roasting the aubergines gives them a delicious texture and flavour that pairs perfectly with miso.

Here’s how you do it

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C. Cut the aubergine in ½ lengthwise and score a criss cross pattern with a sharp knife, sprinkle with salt. Once the oven is at temperature, put the aubergine halves cut side down onto a greaseproof paper lined baking tray and roast for 30 minutes or until soft.
  2. Rinse the rice under cold water, then cook in salted boiling water according to pack instructions - around 30 minutes. Once cooked drain and toss in a bowl with a little sesame oil.
  3. While the rice is cooking toast the sesame seeds in a dry pan until lightly golden, then remove from the pan immediately to stop them burning. Finely slice the spring onions and chop the chilli if using.
  4. When the aubergines are soft, carefully turn over and drizzle with a little sesame oil and cook for 10 minutes until lightly browned. Brush 1tbsp Nojo sauce over the top. Cook for another 10 minutes.
  5. Cut the pak choi in half lengthways and steam for 3-4 minutes until tender. Drain well.
  6. Divide the rice between two bowls, top with the pak choi and aubergine. Drizzle the rice with 1tbsp Nojo sauce and top with sliced spring onions if using, chopped chilli and toasted sesame seeds.
