To make the seasoning, preheat the oven to 220C/200C Fan/Gas 7, place the bonito flakes, soy and sugar in a saucepan and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Stir in the sesame oil and pour onto a baking tray then bake for 5–10 minutes, remove from the oven and leave to harden. Break up into pieces and mix with the sesame seeds, chilli and nori.
To make the sauce, place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix together.
To make the vegetables, grill the vegetables on a hot griddle pan until soft and lightly charred all over. Pour the sauce over the vegetables and set aside.
Serve the vegetables and top with the seasoning.
