MC Baker's Note:
I really wanted a fast eggplant dish. I was actually looking for a recipe similar to an eggplant stew, from a restaurant I frequent but came up with this one instead. It is the best eggplant dish I've had, but I'll still keep searching for something like that stewed dish. This one burns very easily so keep an eye on it. I don't recommend going over the times listed, so you may want to set a timer. If you don't go over (especially on the miso broiling step) it should be really tasty. It's not bad even if it is a little burned.
My Private Note
