Preparation : 10 min Cooking : 15 min
190 calories/serving


3/4 tsp sesame seeds 3 g
2 aubergines /eggplants, Asian type 360 g
2 tsp soy sauce 10 mL
3 tbsp olive oil 45 mL
1 tsp sesame seed oil 5 mL
1 tsp rice vinegar 5 mL
1 tsp Hoisin sauce 6 g
1 tsp miso (fermented soybean paste) 5 g
1 green onions/scallions


  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F.
  2. Put the sesame seeds in a small pan and heat over medium heat a few minutes, with some stirring, until lightly coloured. Set aside.
  3. Cut the unpeeled aubergines crosswise at an angle into slices of about 1 cm. Heat a nonstick frying pan over high heat without adding any oil, and brown the aubergine slices on both sides for about 3 min until lightly browned. Transfer the slices to a baking dish and bake about 10 min until they are soft but not too dry.
  4. In the meantime, in a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, oils, vinegar, Hoisin sauce, miso paste, and sesame seeds. Pour the mixture over the hot aubergines as soon they are taken out of the oven. Toss well, sprinkle with the chopped green onions, and serve.
