This is an easy warming dish which I knocked up for a quick team lunch this month.
Cut 2 aubergines into cubes and shallow fry on all sides in olive oil for several minutes until half cooked through, then removed from the pan.
In a separate bowl, mix together 4 tablespoons of red miso paste, 4 tablespoons of sugar, 1.5 cups of water and simmer in a pan with a few slices of ginger.
Once hot, add the aubergines, and cook for a further 5-10 minutes on a low-heat until soft. The miso sauce will thicken up so take care.
