Walnut & Miso dressing
Eat your greens! I can’t say it often enough. This sauce/dressing can jazz up the most boring greens. So please try this one on your green beans, broccoli etc.
200 ml Mirin or good apple juice. Mirin you can find in the sushi section. Put the Mirin into a pot and bring it to boil. Let it simmer gently, to get some of the booze out, approx. 5 min.
Take the pot of the cooker and add 2 tbsp white miso – Whisk!
Toast 100 gr Walnuts.
Add liquid and toasted nuts into a blender. Add 2 cloves of garlic, 1 tbsp Apple Cider vinegar, pinch of Cayenne pepper and a teaspoon of Tamari or Bragg’s. You can add a tbsp of honey, but that depends of your tastebuds.
Pulse! But don’t turn it into baby puree. Keep some texture!
This sauce goes well with a lot of veggies. Experiment! And keeps in the fridge for some days if you are so lucky!
I have taken inspiration from one of my cookbooks “Enchanted Broccoli Forest” by Mollie KatzenThe New Enchanted Broccoli Forest (Mollie Katzen's Classic Cooking) – But as always pimped by me!
