Stuffed Aubergine with a Miso Glaze

I decided to create this recipe for Veganuary. I’ve been seeing a lot of people make miso aubergine, but as a vegetable, I find aubergines quite bland and knew I wouldn’t be able to just use a glaze on an aubergine. I knew I needed something more, something with a deeper flavour to bring out the delicate taste of miso. This blend of flavours and fresh vegetables is just perfect for Veganuary and works well as a meal for lunch or dinner and a great source of all nutrients
