Shichimi togarashi is a spicy blend of chilli, seeds, spices and citrus peel – it’s worth seeking out. The deal with the chickpeas here is that some stay in the aubergine and some tumble onto the tray to roast and become crispy, like bonus croutons.


  • 2 large aubergines, halved lengthways
  • 90 ml olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed


Preheat the oven to 190°C/170°C fan. Score the cut flesh-sides of the aubergine halves in a diamond cross-hatch pattern. Place the aubergines on a baking tray, cut sides up.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the oil, garlic, sugar, miso, tamari and sesame seeds. B
