Japanese aubergines are long and thin and have an attractive purple hue. They have a mild, sweet flesh and a buttery texture that melts in your mouth.

Ingredients

Aubergine

4 medium, Japanese (about 450g), sliced crosswise about 1cm thick

Calorie controlled cooking spray

5 spray(s)

Soy Sauce

2 tablespoons

Lemon Juice, Fresh

1 tablespoons, fresh

Rice Wine Vinegar

1½ teaspoons

Root Ginger

¼ teaspoons

Garlic

1 clove(s), crushed

Spring Onions

25 g, thinly sliced on the diagonal

Instructions

  1. Preheat grill. Coat aubergine with cooking spray. (Note: If you can’t find any Japanese aubergines, buy regular aubergines that are small in size.)
  2. Grill aubergine turning as needed until lightly charred and tender, about 7 to 9 minutes.
  3. Whisk soy sauce, lemon juice, vinegar, ginger and garlic in a small bowl until blended. Drizzle over grilled aubergine and sprinkle with spring onions.
