Comfort Food: Broccoli Miso Sauce
Updated: September 5th, 2011
This is a recipe I’ve been making for a few years now on nights when I’m feeling very lazy and not too creative. It’s satisfying comfort food heaped on top of pasta, rice, steamed veggies, potatoes, or whatever else you can think of. and it’s well-suited to the cool fall weather. The Vegetarians in Paradise, based in Los Angeles, published the original recipe. Here are my notes on how I make it.
– I use 1/4 cup olive oil
– Using a flavoured vegetable stock in place of water makes this sauce even tastier
– I usually use only 3 cloves garlic since it remains raw in this sauce (using more, older garlic can make this sauce really overwhelming)
– Juice from 1/2 of a fresh lemon
– I add 2-3 tbsp mild brown rice miso
Also, I usually don’t pay attention to how much broccoli I’m using, which means sometimes I need to add a little bit more water.
