  1. If using the spice mix, blend the spice blend ingredients in a spice grinder, pestle and mortar or small food processor. Set aside. You will be using ½-1 tsp of this mix. Store the remainder in a lidded jar.

  2. Blend the softened butter, miso and ½ - 1 tsp of Japanese 7-spice in a small bowl.

  3. Saute the aubergine gently in the oil until lightly golden, turning with tongs to cook evenly.

  4. While the aubergine is cooking, steam the Tenderstem® broccoli for 2 minutes. Add the Tenderstem® broccoli to the sauté pan with the aubergine, followed by the miso butter, tossing gently. Serve warm.
