This soy glazed eggplant recipe is delicious and easy to make! One of my favourite recipes to do with Japanese eggplant – I was looking for a vegetable dish to pair with an Unagi Kabayaki which we bought earlier and this Japanese eggplant recipe came to mind. So I decided to do an unagi and soy glazed Japanese eggplant don.
The flavour profile of the sauces for both the unagi and this soy glazed eggplant are nearly similar, with both having a side of savoury and sweetness to it. As the eggplant is a very mild and delicate vegetable, it takes on any flavour you put into it, so even having it on its own, without the unagi is already really good. This dish is super easy and if you use a smaller eggplant or have a bigger pan to use, this is literally a one pan dinner recipe.
