Miso Eggplant Salad with Pomegranate

Miso Eggplant Salad with Pomegranate

With the weather starting to get a bit warmer, it feels right to put away the slow cooker and start to eat fresh and light meals. This salad is a winner for summer. Pair with grilled meat or fish or add some chickpeas for a quick vegetarian meal. The slight bitterness of the rocket leaves goes perfectly with with the sweetness of the antioxidant rich pomegranate.

Serves 4 as a side 

Ingredients:

  • 4 handfuls of rocket leaves
  • 1 eggplant 
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1T miso paste 
  • 1 tsp Apple Cider vinegar 
  • 1T olive oil 
  • Handful of mint leaves
  • Olive oil for drizzling 

Dressing:

  • 3T olive oil
  • 1T balsamic vinegar
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees fan bake. Chop the eggplant into 1cm thick rounds and then in half. Place on a baking tray. Mix together the miso paste, ACV and olive oil and drizzle over the eggplant. Roast in the oven for 25 minutes turning once halfway through. In the last 5-10 minutes add the walnuts to the tray to crisp up. 
  2. Arrange the rocket in a salad bowl. Top with pomegranate seeds, mint leaves, roasted miso eggplant and walnuts. Drizzle over the dressing.

 

Tip: To get the pomegranate seeds out roll the fruit first to loosen the seeds. Score around the middle and tear it open into halves.Hold each half over a bowl, seeds facing down and tap the skin with a wooden spoon, squeezing a little to release the seeds.
