Miso + Asparagus + Oven = Magic

Can we talk about my new obsession for just a bit? You may have seen it in last week’s post next to my detox burgers. I usually like posting about complete meals rather than side dishes, because it’s not very helpful if you’re looking for dinner inspiration. But this side dish…right now I just want to eat this all the time. With everything.

It came together rather randomly. I bought asparagus at the farmers market, not because I had any ideas what to do with it but I just ’cause I love eating asparagus (and the silly way it makes your pee smell!). When looking in my fridge, I noticed a ball of neglected miso paste my friend gave me ages ago to make a miso soup that never happened.

That suddenly reminded me that I saw a blog post back in March on Big Girls Small Kitchen. I was intrigued by the name “Miso-Roasted Asparagus”. I had all the ingredients on hand except white wine so I went ahead and made it! (Three bottles of red wine, but not a drop of white. Good job, Iris).

It was SO good. So good. My boyfriend said we should bottle the sauce and make millions. An obsession was born. I’m totally making this again tonight. It’s Spring, so go buy some fresh asparagus. Click on the recipe at Big Girls Small Kitchen. Make some miso-roasted asparagus. That is all.

  1. I would eat more asparagus except I really hate asparagus pee. :-( I’m totally with you on combining miso with asparagus – my husband makes some kind of miso-based paste that he smears on toast, then tops it with asaparagus and a fried or poached egg. So damn good, highly recommend giving that combo a try!
