Lisa Faulkner shares her Miso and Honey Roast Aubergines recipe

It's an often misunderstood and underused vegetable, but aubergines are in season right now and set for a revival on British plates this autumn, as budding amateur chefs look for more creative ingredients and recipes to set their meals apart.

Former Celebrity MasterChef winner and television cookery show presenter Lisa Faulkner is one such fan of the aubergine and she has plenty of tips on how to prepare aubergines, how to cook them and what other ingredients to match them with to get the most out of this beautiful purple vegetable.

She's also teamed up with Kikkoman soy sauce to create a popular Japanese dish - Miso and Honey Roasted Aubergines - that can either be the star of the meal or a fresh, healthy and easy accompaniment to any meat dish.
