It was a year ago when I started entertaining the idea of starting my own website. I started to do some research to find out who were the best food bloggers

 and this is how I found Steph, from iamafoodblog. I was fascinated by the look of it, her photos are just amazing! Eggplant is my favorite vegetable

and that was the time when I was starting to use miso in my kitchen, so when I saw her Oven-Roasted Eggplant with Caramelised Miso recipe

just went to buy the ingredients to make it! It is very easy to make and the result is divine! Hope you like it as much as I do!
