  • 1 tbsp Clearspring Organic Japanese Brown Rice Miso
  • 1 tbsp clear honey
  • ½ tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1 large aubergine, cut into wedges
  • 100g wholegrain rice
  • 100g frozen edamame beans
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter (or a plant-based alternative)
  • 150g pack shiitake mushrooms
  • 2 tsp Kikkoman Organic Soy Sauce
  • 2 salad onions, finely sliced
  • Sesame seeds, toasted, to serve (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the miso, honey, sesame oil and 2 tbsp water. Add the aubergine and toss in the mixture. Spread over a foil-lined roasting tray and roast for 30 minutes, turning halfway through.

  2. Meanwhile, put the rice in a large saucepan and cover with plenty of cold water. Bring to the boil, then simmer for about 25 minutes, or until tender, topping up with extra water if necessary. Add the edamame beans 9 minutes before the end of cooking. Drain and set aside.

  3. For the mushrooms, heat the butter and 1 tbsp water in a frying pan over a high heat. Once the butter has melted, swirl to combine with the water, then add the mushrooms. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side until golden, then add the soy sauce and a grind of black pepper. Turn the mushrooms to coat, then take off the heat and set aside.

  4. Divide the rice and edamame beans between bowls. Top with the aubergine and mushrooms, then scatter over the salad onions and sesame seeds (if using) before serving.

Cook’s tip

Try swapping the wholegrain rice for quinoa or buckwheat noodles, cooking them according to pack instructions. A soft-boiled egg would go nicely on top too
