Grilled Eggplant with Sesame Teriyaki Sauce

If you can, get your hands on some eggplant, fire up your grill to make this vegan grilled eggplant with sesame teriyaki sauce. The Japanese-inspired teriyaki sauce is so easy to make as a delicious glaze for the grilled eggplant. It’s definitely a great complement to the eggplant. I always find grilled eggplant a bit dry if served without sauce. That’s the reason I created the teriyaki sauce, to add another dimension. Grilling adds a little smokiness to the veggie, and the sweet sauce pairs so well with it.



Eggplant contains a good amount of vitamins, minerals and fiber, one whole cup of eggplant is only 20 calories! Best of all, they are low on calories but really high on flavour when seasoned right! The flavour is mild yet earthy and eggplant can be paired with nearly any kind of seasoning s one of those divisive vegetables that eaters either love or hate. But then, I suppose you could say that about all vegetables, am I right? Growing up we never ate eggplant. But today, with more adventuresome palates in ‘da house, it’s one of those vegetables I find myself craving in a big way.



Whether you enjoy it as a main or a side it’s sure to satisfy your Japanese food cravings! If you’ve never had it before, well, you’re in for a treat! Eggplant or aubergine is a great vegetable when paired with sauce, it takes on the flavour really well, in this case the teriyaki sauce. In this dish, eggplant serves as a non-starchy veggie, while the rice provides carbs, and the tofu contributes protein. Who knew balanced eating could taste so good?
