Miso glazed eggplant from Daisy's World is a splendidly simple summertime dish. Thick slices of Japanese eggplant are broiled in the oven until almost tender. They are then covered in a miso glaze comprised of white miso, mirin, and sugar. This dish can also be made on the grill which would add a nice smoky flavor. Miso glazed eggplant would be delicious alongside a piece of marinated tofu, a piece of fish, or even chicken.
