Miso is delicious. Its perfect match: the humble, sweet pea.

I came to know miso through and article on the NYT by Mark Bittman. Ever since, I have been using it regularly. I like miso because, when mixed to other food, it adds complexity and texture without much fat.  Because it miso is fermented, it has a complex flavor profile that can be simultaneously sweet and salty, earthy and fruity. It pairs beautifully with vegetables, especially spring vegetables.

The recipe I am sharing with you today is a simple one, perfect for a weekend lunch accompanied with a big handful of greens. It could also serve as appetizer to a special dinner. The combination of meaty eggplant, which can be either roasted or grilled, goat cheese, and miso & pea puree is sublime. A must try.
