Expert Tips

Use this sauce on other vegetables such as Brussels sprouts, cauliflower and green beans.

To avoid home meal boredom, I like to dedicate one night a week to Asian cooking. Because I like to keep my family enthusiastic about home-cooked meals, I experiment with a variety of flavors, ingredients and spices. One of my favorites is miso paste. Because miso has such a unique flavor, it's a perfect addition to any broth, sauce or Asian stew. This simple recipe is an example of how miso can elevate the much-dreaded broccoli to a coveted side dish in just under 20 minutes.

Directions

  • 1 In a large pan, add 1 cup water and bring to a simmer over medium heat.
  • 2 Arrange the baby broccoli in the pan and steam for approximately 3-5 minutes. Do not over-steam. The baby broccoli should be darker in color but slightly tender.
  • 3 Remove from heat and discard water.
  • 4 In a small bowl, combine the miso paste and 2 tablespoons water. Stir until the miso has completely dissolved.
  • 5 Wipe pan dry with a paper towel. Return pan to stove and add grape-seed oil, ginger root, garlic and jalapeño, and cook for 3 minutes over medium heat.
  • 6 Stir in the miso water, soy sauce and sesame oil. Cook for 1 minute more.
  • 7 To serve, place steamed baby broccoli on a serving plate and top with miso sauce.
