  • 1 1/3tbspToasted Sesame Oil
  • 1tspGarlic
  • 0 1/3tbsp choppedShallots

  • 2ozDry Roasted Peanuts (with Salt)

DIRECTIONS

Miso paste can be made from barley, rice or soy. This recipe calls for the soy kind, brown is more mellow tasting than red or white. Asian eggplants are narrow and straight, with a sweeter taste than the larger, rounder Italian ones. Holy basil is best for this recipe because it has an anise flavor. Substitute another sweet basil if you cannot find it. If you don't have a grill, use the broiler instead.

  1. Prepare the topping in a small bowl, thoroughly mixing the Hoisin sauce, 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil, minced garlic, chopped shallot, tamari and miso paste. Set aside.

  2. Prepare the marinade by mixing together the remaining 1 tablespoon of toasted sesame and canola oil. Brush on the eggplant and let stand for 30 minutes or up to an hour.

  3. Preheat the grill to medium. Grill eggplant halves, skin side down, for 2-3 minutes. Turn and grill for another 2-3 minutes on the other side.

  4. Using a butter knife, spread the topping on the cut side of the eggplant halves. Sprinkle with basil and 1/4 roasted chopped peanuts (if using) before serving. Enjoy!

  5. Steel's Rocky Mountain Hoisin Sauce contains no sugar.  To chiffonade is to cut into narrow strips. Stack the basil leaves, roll them tightly and then slice into thin strips with a sharp knife.

Comment calculer les glucides nets

Avec l’approche nutritionnelle AtkinsMD, le décompte net AtkinsMC est calculé en soustrayant le nombre de grammes de fibres et de polyols (comme la glycérine et les alcools de sucre) du nombre total de grammes de glucides contenu dans les aliments entiers. Ce calcul correspond au concept voulant que les fibres et les polyols ont des répercussions minimales sur le taux de glycémie dans les quantités dans lesquelles on les retrouve dans les produits.
