    Miso & Mozzarella Baked Eggplant

    It seems many people were surprised to see my ‘Miso & Mozzarella Baked Tofu’ as they never thought of mixing Miso and Mozzarella. My husband prefers Eggplant version to Tofu version.

    This ‘Nabe’ dish appeared on my family’s dinner table quite often when I was a little girl, though Chicken Fillets were not in the pot.
