Sesame, Eggplant and Noodle Salad

A Celebration of Asian Food with a Retro Kikkoman Noodle Dish

I’m the first to admit I am not much of an Asian food cook, but I LOVE to eat it.

Occasionally I stumble across a recipe that works for me. I’m not sure if I should say ’embarrassingly’ or rather just ‘ironically’, but this recipe comes from a Kikkoman ad in a magazine…about 20 years ago. I think it must have been my first foray into ‘Asian’ cooking.

After carefully copying it into my recipe journal it became a staple part of our Sunday lunch menu and it was an immediate hit. Although I really can’t understand why it is called “Chinese..,” when the flavours are really so Japanese! It is so simple, yet truly delicious.

I bet if you asked anyone who came to our place for lunch in the 90s, they would remember this dish. I am so thrilled to have rediscovered it after searching through my messy and huge unfiled recipe file. It’s been a while. But guess what’s back on the menu now?

  1. Combine all the dressing ingredients, stirring well to dissolve the sugar.
  2. Slice the eggplant into 1 cm slices. Line a large baking tray with aluminium foil.
  3. Brush the eggplant with the dressing on both sides. Cook under the grill (broiler) for about 10 minutes, basting often and turning when golden. Remove, cut into halves or thirds and toss with the remaining dressing.

  5. Toss the noodles, green spring onions and sesame with the eggplant. Garnish with green onion and sliced red chilli if desired.

This is Nana's Date and Nut Loaf.⁠
Jacqui's Nana, to be precise.⁠

So simple.⁠
So good.⁠

Recipe can be found in our third book, It's Always About the Food, on p. 278.⁠

We tried Jaks' nana's nut loaf for the first time at our working retreat for this book, back in early 2016. We spent four days locked away from all distraction, madly finishing the testing of recipes and sorting of chapters. A lot of heated debates were had, and one afternoon's tension was relieved when we all sat down with a good, strong cuppa and a thickly buttered slice of nut loaf. Disagreements were resolved, frustrations were calmed and all was good in the MMCC house.⁠

Check out the video on our IGTV and you will see how simple it really is.⁠

Last one, we promise.⁠
Mini-bundt butter cake with blood orange icing.⁠

We had a very funny hour - and at times hectic - baking butter cakes in different shapes and sizes with different frostings and icings.⁠

The recipe for this outstanding Basic Butter Cake can be found in our new book Now for Something Sweet on page 43.⁠ (With thanks to Merrylin Goodman.)⁠


Our next Zoom event is on Monday 20 July at 11 am and we would love you to cook along with us to make a fabulous-for-winter Lamb and Date Tagine.⁠
