Recipe by  

"Japanese eggplants are given a sweet miso glaze and broiled. Not an authentic recipe but it's easy to find the ingredients at many grocery stores. These tender eggplants are delicious as an appetizer or a vegetarian main course. If you cannot find agave nectar, honey may be substituted."

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
  2. Warm the apple juice, cranberry juice, and vinegar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir in miso paste and agave nectar until smooth. Reduce heat to low to keep warm, stirring occasionally. Brush the cut side of the eggplants with sesame oil. Place the eggplants cut side down in a shallow baking pan.
  3. Broil in the preheated oven for 3 minutes, checking occasionally to ensure they do not burn. Turn eggplants over and broil until they become golden brown and tender, about 3 minutes. Spoon miso sauce onto each eggplant and continue broiling until miso becomes bubbly, about 1 minute. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onion. Serve hot.

The glaze was awesome, though I tweaked it a bit. I used white grape with peach instead of apple juice and pomegranite instead of cranberry juice because that was what I had in the fridge. The consistency of the eggplant was a little mushy for my palate but I will use the glaze again for sure.
