Easy Miso Marinated Aubergine & Quinoa


Marinating aubergine in delicious miso and baking it in the oven is so quick and so simple but creates the most gorgeous accompaniment to a dinner, main element to a tasty lunch with a big salad OR an incredible summer BBQ side dish. In this recipe I'm sharing with you today I've paired the sticky miso aubergine with a chilli & miso quinoa, mushroom & pak choi dish - the perfect pairing if you ask me!

To make this recipe even more quick & easy I used Itsu's Miso-Easy sachet which is a vegan, gluten free miso paste. I love to have these in my cupboard to add to stir-fries, soups, to make salad dressings and to drizzle over aubergine like I've done for this recipe.



The Miso'Easy is perfect to use on it's own or I like to mix it with a little lime juice and a touch of tamari to add a little more flavour. When baked in the oven the aubergine absorbs all the authentic japanese flavours so well, it becomes to tender and so flavoursome - trust me, it's game-changing!
The quinoa is also pretty fab, and I used the miso'easy sachet in chilli flavour for this which adds a delicious kick and pairs well with the mushrooms and pak choi for a true Japanese feel dish.



Itsu's Miso'Easy sachets are available at Sainsburys, Waitrose, Tesco, Co-Op, Amazon and a variety of health food stores, so be sure to pick some up during your next shop for quick, healthy meals like this.
