We’re going gourmet here, with tofu shirataki noodles and roasted, chopped eggplant served in a complex mixture of miso, honey and soy sauce. Though they resemble fettuccine pasta, tofu shirataki are specialty noodles made from tofu and a type of Asian yam. The long, cascading noodles (“shirataki” means “white waterfall” in Japanese) are deliciously bouncy and light. Topped with elegant and peppery nasturtium leaves, this dish makes a special occasion of any night.
