Dishing Up the Dirt

miso-glazed carrots and broccoli

January 3, 2013

So, you know how yesterday I slipped on some ice, cried, felt sorry for myself and continued to have panic attacks about the upcoming farm season? Whomp whomp.


Well, I think I found a cure. Not only does my elbow feel much better, but I did not wake up in the middle of the night in a puddle of my own sweat (gross image I know).  A few of my favorite vegetables was all it took to get me feeling like myself again. That, and a glass of wine plus the soundtrack to Les Mis playing in the background.

Drum roll please…………..Miso-Glazed Carrots and Broccoli. This is the cure to EVERYTHING. Taylor and I proclaimed this little side dish the best to date.

IMG_1506If you are feeling a little blue, or just need something to jazz up your evening this is the side dish you need to make. We loved it so much we are making it again tonight.

IMG_1511We were lucky enough to have all the ingredients on hand, but if you do not have everything then I urge you to run to the store and gather up the goods. This tasty little number is worth it!

Miso-Glazed Carrots and Broccoli (serves 4 )

2 tbs grapeseed oil (canola oil would work as well)

2  tbs mirin (found in the ethnic food section of most grocery stores)

1  tbs tamari

1  tbs mellow white miso

2 tsp minced fresh ginger

About 3 cups carrots (cut into 1/2 slices)

About 3 cups of broccoli florets

Preheat the oven to 475. Lightly grease a large sheet pan with oil.

With an immersion blender mix together the miso glaze ingredients. If you don’t have one you can whisk the ingredients together by hand.

In a large bowl mix the miso sauce with the vegetables. Transfer everything to the prepared baking pan.

Roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender.

  1. You look awesome in your work attire! And what a great smile despite a fall on ice (been there! ouch!) and a bit of a panic attack. Good for you for making carrots. I would have made…brownies 🙂

    I haven’t been able to find miso in the store – whereabouts do you find it? this looks like such a good way to use it!

      Most stores should carry it, however if your regular store does not check your health food store. They will have it for sure! Good luck and let me know if you make this!!!
