Cheng Can Cook: Baked Japanese Eggplant Recipe ★★★

Easy Eggplant Fix without Miso. I had to cook Eggplant tonight, but I realized that I ran out of Miso, so I came up the recipe below tonight. It ended up tasting like Miso.

3-4 Eggplants
Bonito Flakes or Green Onions for Garnish (optional)

Sauce: (A bit of everything, more on the Cooking Sake & Mirin. Mix enough to lightly coat Eggplants)
Japanese Cooking Sake
Japanese Sesame Sauce (can be optional)
Sesame Oil
Japanese Oyster Soy Sauce (or regular Soy Sauce)
Grated Ginger (optional) (Didn't use because I didn't have any Ginger on hand)
Cooking Oil

1. Preheat Oven to 475 degrees. Slice Eggplant into bite-size pieces.
2. Mix the sauce. Coat Eggplant with sauce.
3. Bake for about 45 minutes (depending on your oven) until Eggplant is soft well coated.
4. Garnish with Bonito Flakes or Green Onions (optional). Good with rice.
