  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Gently score a diamond pattern into the flesh side of each aubergine. Whisk together the miso, soy, maple syrup and oil in a bowl and brush over the aubergine flesh. Arrange, cut-side up, on a baking tray and roast for 35-40 mins until sticky and tender.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the rice to pack instructions; drain and return to the pan. Add the mirin, lime zest and juice and mix well.
  3. Divide the rice between 2 bowls and top each with the cucumber and aubergines, spooning over any juices from the dish. Scatter over the spring onions, chilli and coriander. Drizzle over the chilli sauce, if using.
