Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, beat together the miso paste, sake, sugar, and soy sauce. Heat the sauce over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Beat in the lime juice a teaspoon at a time. Taste for desired amount, and heat through until it almost boils. The sauce should be thick. If it seems a little stiff add the water to it, a teaspoon at a time.
  3. Spoon the sauce over the vegetables.  Sprinkle with cilantro if using, and toss together. Eat immediately.

Chef Tips

Look for the small 8 oz bottles of sake. If sake is difficult to find in your area, use dry sherry, marsala wine or even an oaky chardonnay as a substitute.

White miso, or ‘miso shiro’ can be found in Asian markets or the health food store.
