SW recipe: Miso and honey roasted aubergines


• Low calorie cooking spray

• 4 large aubergines, halved lengthways

• 1 level tbsp brown miso paste

• 2 garlic cloves, crushed

• 2cm piece fresh root ginger, peeled and grated

• 2 level tsp runny honey

• 1 tbsp dark soy sauce

• 1 level tsp toasted sesame oil

• 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped

• 100ml boiling vegetable stock

• 1/2 level tsp sesame seeds, Lightly toasted, to serve

• 3 spring onions, shredded, to serve

• 50g pomegranate seeds, to serve

• Boiled dried rice, to serve


Preheat the oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C/Gas 4. Spray a large non-stick baking tray with low calorie cooking spray and arrange the aubergines cut-side up in a single layer.

Using a small sharp knife, score the flesh in a criss-cross pattern, taking care not to cut all the way through to the skin.

In a small bowl, mix the miso paste, garlic, ginger, honey, soy sauce, sesame oil and chilli.

Brush the mixture over the cut sides of the aubergines (a pastry brush works well) and roast for 20 minutes or until softened. Pour over the stock and cook for a further 25 minutes or until done to your liking.

Meanwhile, briefly dry-fry the sesame seeds until lightly browned and set aside. Scatter the sesame seeds, spring onions and pomegranate seeds over the aubergines and serve with rice.

Make simple swaps
To help protect your weight loss, choose the leanest meats and trim off any visible fat – cut the white bits off bacon and remove skin from poultry. Dry-fry or cook with low-calorie cooking spray rather than fat or oil, switch sugar for sweetener, and swap cream and crème fraîche for fat-free natural yogurt or plain quark.
