White miso is made from boiled soybeans, and red miso is made from steamed soybeans. Fermented foods are foods that have been through a process of lacto-fermentation in which natural bacteria feed on the sugar and starch in the food creating lactic acid. This process preserves the food, and creates beneficial enzymes, B-vitamins, Omega-3 fatty acids and various probiotics, improving our digestion. Equally, natural fermentation of foods has been shown to preserve nutrients in food and break it down to a more digestible form.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 aubergines
1 tablespoon olive oil
sea salt

For the miso satay

Quantity Ingredient
80g Activated nuts, cashews activated
1 tablespoon white miso paste
1 tablespoon tahini paste
1 tablespoon tamarind paste
3 tablespoons tamari soy sauce
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup or coconut nectar
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
2.5cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled
1 large garlic clove, peeled
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
3/4 tablespoons coconut milk, plus 1 tablespoon if needed
toasted black and white sesame seeds, to garnish

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Cut each aubergine in half lengthways. Score across the flesh diagonally one way and then the other to form a diamond pattern (this allows the steam to escape). Drizzle lightly with olive oil, sprinkle with a little sea salt and roast in the oven for 25 minutes until the flesh starts to soften.
  2. While the aubergines are roasting, make the miso satay. Combine all the ingredients with a pinch of salt in a high-speed blender or food processor and process until smooth and thick. Add a little more of the coconut milk, to reach the consistency you desire.
  3. Remove the aubergines from the oven, and spread a layer of the satay sauce over the top of each one. Return to the oven and bake for a further 10 minutes or until the aubergines have become quite gooey. For the last few minutes, turn the oven to its grill (broiler) setting and lightly grill (broil) the top to brown a little. Remove from the grill and allow to cool slightly. Sprinkle a few sesame seeds on each aubergine half and serve.
