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

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

  3. Cut the aubergine into thin slices and sauté 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.
