Miso Glazed Eggplants

Something I really enjoy when I go out to eat sushi is the miso glazed eggplant.  I've been wanting to try making it at home for a while now, but when I saw these mini purple eggplants at the farmer's market this past weekend I had to buy them!!  I knew just what I was going to make with them too!!  The recipe below is adapted from one I found using the Epicurious free iPhone application!!  As a side note, I actually use this app a lot and find it to be very helpful and easy to use!
 Miso Glazed Eggplants
(makes 3 servings)
3 tablespoons white miso paste
1 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon water
1 1/4 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger
3 Asian eggplants, halved lengthwise
1 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more for brushing on eggplants

Preheat broiler. Whisk miso, vinegar, water, sugar, and ginger until sugar is dissolved.  Brush a baking sheet with oil and arrange eggplants, cut side up, in pan.  Brush tops of the eggplants with 2 tablespoons oil.  Place under broiler, 5 inches from heat, for about 5 minutes.  You should see the eggplants turn pale golden and soften.  

Brush eggplants generously with miso glaze, and broil for 3 more minutes.  Brush again with miso and rotate pan 180 degrees then continue to broil until eggplant is tender and the glaze is golden brown.  Serve and enjoy!
