Teriyaki Glazed Aubergine

This has to be the ultimate way of cooking an aubergine and it’s made so easy using the Ninja Foodi Multi-Cooker. They’re a delicious side dish or centre piece to a meal and are super simple to prepare. The aubergine becomes really soft and just absorbs all of that incredible flavour from the teriyaki glaze!

  • Step 1

    Slice the aubergine in half length ways and score a criss cross pattern over the inside of both pieces (this will help the marinade to absorb all the flavour)

  • Step 2

    Coat the aubergine in a tsp of sesame oil and rub this all over. Place the aubergine into the cooking basket with 150ml water in the bottom of the Ninja Foodi Multi-Cooker. Set to ‘Air Crisp’ at 200c and cook for 10 minutes

  • Step 3

    Meanwhile, mix together the sesame oil, tamari, agave, ginger, garlic, lime and chilli flakes to make the marinade. Add a splash of water if needed. You want the mixture to be a little sticky

  • Step 4

    Pour this over the aubergine and into all of the slits you made earlier, then cook for a further 15 minutes until beautifully soft and crisp around the edges

  • Step 5

    Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve!
