Ginger flavours sweet and sour aubergine dish

Serve a sweet and sour aubergine dish with sesame seeds

Ginger can be used to flavour one intensely-flavoured dish served as breakfast in Japan.

Allegra McEvedy, author of five cookery books, sampled the Sesame Sweet and Sour Aubergine while in the country for her new book, Bought, Borrowed & Stolen - Recipes & Knives from a Travelling Chef.

In an extract from the title published in the Guardian, she noted the dish, which consists of sliced aubergines seasoned with sauce made from salt, sesame seeds, ginger, oil, vinegar, soy, honey and mirin, is best served either warm or at room temperature.

It should be accompanied with plain rice and grilled meat or fish, she observed, adding the flavour of the aubergines is "pretty intense".

Preparing the aubergines and seasoning sauce takes around 30 minutes, she observed, while cooking time is approximately an hour and a half.

The aubergines should be sliced, with the sauce - made by combining the ingredients and bringing to a simmer in the saucepan - poured into a flat baking disk, before the aubergines are added so around two-thirds of the slices are submerged in the liquid.
