Miso Glazed Eggplant

I have been eyeing this recipe for ages, but I could never find these long slender eggplants. To my delight I finally spotted some and they were on sale. The best thing about this recipe is that the outside is nicely caramelized, and the inside is gorgeously creamy. It pairs well with a bowl of rice. I am now obsessed with this simple recipe and I can’t wait to make it again.
