Miso sticky aubergine, crunchy kale and rice 🍆

This recipe is supppppper easy to make, tastes a dream…. And well loook at it!🔥 I served these slices on a bed of nutty brown rice, and simply fried off some kale on the side and the combo was outstanding.

I used a long aubergine, cut it into thin slice slices & marinated them overnight, if you dont have time then a few hours would suffice.

During my working week im so busy, but dont want to sacrifice a good, healthy and tasty dinner just because of lack of time, and if this is the case for you also then you must DEFFO try this recipe!

You could also serve this dish with different vegetables on the side depending on your preference, however the crispy kale works wonders with the soft and super flavoursome aubergine.

    I’m a little confused by the instruction. You say to fry the pieces, add the marinade and thicken it, then cut up the eggplant. Are you frying the eggplant whole then cutting it up or cutting it up first?

    I see garlic in the picture but not in the recipe. I think it would make a good addition and will be adding garlic when I make this.
