eggplant miso & bell pepper

I HATED eggplant when I was little. But you know how as you get older, your taste buds change? I don’t love it now, but I don’t hate it either. And one eggplant dish I like is a sweet miso based sauce. This is one that I usually make if I buy some eggplant. Even my foodie partner who doesn’t like eggplant will eat it.

One nice thing I like about asian eggplant is that it’s long and thing rather that the fat bulgy ones I used to buy in the US. It does tend to be expensive but there’s a weekly vegetable stall nearby the apartment that sells a bunch for cheap! Oh and I remember when I was little, I didn’t know the english name for eggplant until I was in 3rd grade. I just called it Nasu.


なす味噌とピーマン

昔はナスが大嫌いだった。でも年取ると下が変わるっていうでしょ?だから今は大好きとは言えないけど、嫌いでもない。で食べるならやっぱり甘目が好きなので、よくこのなす味噌を作ります。なす嫌いの彼氏も食べれます。

日本に住んでる皆さんにとっては当たり前だけど、私はアジアに移住してこの細長いなすの方が好きです。アメリカのはよく太くてなんか使いづらかった。でもなすは以外と高いかなと思ったけど、アパートの近くに週一で新鮮な野菜を売ってる人のは結構安い!そういえば、昔3年生ぐらいまで英語でなすは知らなかったな。英語でnasuって言ってたかも。
