Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Teriyaki Aubergine Donburi

Preheat the oven to 180°C/ 160°C (fan)/ 350°F/ Gas 4

Add the baby kale to a large baking tray with the sesame seeds, a generous pinch of salt, 1 tsp [2 tsp] sugar and a drizzle of vegetable oil

Massage the kale with clean hands so that it is evenly coated in the oil

Put the baking tray in the oven for 15 min or until crispy – this is your kale seaweed

2 Teriyaki Aubergine Donburi

Meanwhile, add the basmati rice and 300ml [600ml] cold water to a pot with a lid and bring to the boil over a high heat

Once boiling, reduce the heat to very low and cook, covered, for 10-15 min or until all the water has absorbed and the rice is cooked

Once cooked, remove from the heat and keep covered until serving

3 Teriyaki Aubergine Donburi

Meanwhile, trim the green stalks off the aubergines and cut into chunks 

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

4 Teriyaki Aubergine Donburi

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a generous drizzle of vegetable oil over a medium-high heat 

Once hot, add the chopped aubergine with a pinch of salt and cook for 3 min or until it's beginning to brown

5 Teriyaki Aubergine Donburi

Once browned, reduce the heat to medium, add the chopped garlic and cook for 1 min

Add the soy sauce, honey and mirin and cook for 2 min or until a sticky sauce has formed – this is your teriyaki aubergine


6 Teriyaki Aubergine Donburi

Meanwhile, trim, then slice the spring onion[s] finely, separating the whites from the greens

Grate the radishes

7 Teriyaki Aubergine Donburi

Add the grated radish, spring onion whites (reserve the greens for garnish!), mayonnaise and strong horseradish cream to a medium bowl with a pinch of salt 

Give everything a good old mix up – this is your double radish slaw
