Based on Miso-Cup Recipes
Pierce eggplant several times with a fork to prevent it from exploding. Bake eggplant until soft. Scoop out the center into a blender. Discard the skin. Add dissolved Miso-Cup and rest of ingredients and puree until smooth. Serve on crackers or chips.
I haven't made this yet. You can make a dressing out of it as well, by increasing the amount of water. Miso-Cup is a brand of instant miso soup that you can find at Whole Foods.
The Least Successful Collector
Betsy Baker played a central role in the history of collecting. She
was employed as a servant in the house of John Warburton (1682-1759) who had
amassed a fine collection of 58 first edition plays, including most of the
works of Shakespeare.
One day Warburton returned home to find 55 of them charred beyond
legibility. Betsy had either burned them or used them as pie bottoms. The
remaining three folios are now in the British Museum.
The only comparable literary figure was the maid who in 1835 burned
the manuscript of the first volume of Thomas Carlyle's "The Hisory of the
French Revolution", thinking it was wastepaper.
