Japanese brinjal (eggplants) are given a sweet miso glaze and broiled. Not an authentic recipe but it's easy to find the ingredients at many grocery stores. These tender brinjal (eggplants) are delicious as an appetizer or a vegetarian main course. If you cannot find agave nectar, honey may be substituted.
The glaze was awesome, though I tweaked it a bit. I used white grape with peach instead of apple juice and pomegranite instead of cranberry juice because that was what I had in the fridge. The consistency of the eggplant was a little mushy for my palate but I will use the glaze again for sure. - 12 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These were soooooo good. I did everything I could to find Japanese eggplants, searching the city for days, but no luck. I had to use regular eggplant, but they were very good anyway. Needing them for my NASCAR party, I cut them into rounds. The sauce is divine. For my next party, I'll serve them over little rice noodle nests!
