Dishing Up the Dirt

Roasted Beets & Carrots with Miso-Yogurt

This is a wonderful side dish to serve alongside grilled chicken, steak, or simply served as an appetizer at happy hour. I love the tangy miso-yogurt sauce and have been drizzling it on everything! Grilled chicken, cooked lentils, steak and salmon.  However, this version right here is my favorite. When paired with the sweet, earthy, caramelized vegetables it makes for a simple crowd pleasing side dish. Feel free to make a double batch as the sauce will keep in the fridge for up to one week and is great to have on hand to quickly jazz up any meal.

This platter of veggies can be served finger food style or you can fork and knife it on small plates. Go wild!

    This salad really does look lovely! Already put it on my to-do list.
    I just noticed that the nutritional information doesn’t work anymore – this was the case with every recipe I checked. I hope you are not planning to get rid of it entirely.
    However, I love your blog and cookbook, found some new staples and favorites thanks to you! Greetings from Germany

      Hi there,
      I don’t calculate the nutrition on my recipes (and never have) so you may be thinking of another website. I hope you enjoy the salad!

    I made this tonight and served it over some brown rice with some bacon crumbles. It was so delicious; I’ve never used miso this way before and loved it! Thank you!
