20-minute miso veggie stir-fry anyone? This recipe is what I describe as healthy asian comfort food. It takes less than 20 minutes to whip together, and only 10 ingredients. Made by frying mushroom, zucchini and broccoli in an miso sauce. It’s a simple recipe that packs BIG umami flavour. All-in-all it’s a healthy and hearty asian inspired dish.
This 20-minute miso veggie stir-fry is a quick and easy recipe. I like to make it mid-week when I’m short on time, and I want a a meal that’s quick, healthy and comforting. I can whip it together in a flash for Hubby and me in less than 20 minutes, and it’s so satisfying.
The recipe begins by sautéing mushroom in a saucepan, then adding the zucchini and finally the broccoli for the last few minutes. Pour over the miso sauce and add chickpeas for a bit of protein.
To serve, I like to partner this dish with brown rice or quinoa. All in all you’re looking at a delicious asian inspired miso stir-fry that will have you swooning.
Just like the veg, the ingredients for this miso sauce is minimal. The base of this sauce is made by combining white miso with almond butter and tamari. I’ve then added in some freshly shaved ginger and water to thin. It’s a wicked delicious miso sauce recipe that’s packed with flavour and umami.
I love the almond butter in this recipe to give it a creamy flavour. And the tamari adds boldness and saltiness to the mixture. But, it’s the miso that’s the star ingredient in this sauce. Adding deep flavour and umami that pairs so well with the veg stir-fry.
I feel like I finally understand how to use miso in recipes, and what flavours to pair it with. And this 20-minute miso stir-fry recipe sure proves it. Before I would add only the littlest amount of miso to my dishes – so fearful that it would overpower. I have come to realize that you can use much more than you’d think.
The ingredient ratios in this miso sauce are almost equal. Using 2 tbsp white miso with 3 tbsp almond butter, and 3 tbsp tamari. Needless to say I’ve upped my miso quite a bit to make a delicious miso sauce that can be used for many recipes.
Miso is also a great ingredient to add to your diet health wise (especially for those with IBS like me) as it’s a fermented food. It’s really great for the gut for healthy digestion.
This Miso Veggie Stir-Fry can be made in less than 20 minutes with just 10 ingredients, making it perfect for a fast and easy mid-week meal. It’s a simple recipe that packs big flavour. I like to serve this veg stir-fry with brown rice or quinoa.
It also reheats well for next-day lunches. And you can freeze this recipe in air-tight containers if you want to enjoy at a later date. Let the stir-fry thaw, toss in a saucepan and warm to desired temperature. Or, if you have a microwave then zap it for a few minutes until desired temperature.
You can use this miso sauce for other recipes too. Such as my vegetable tempeh spring rolls. Or, feel free to switch up the veg with your favourites. Asparagus is a great addition to this stir-fry, or try using carrot, roasted sweet potato or roasted eggplant. I’ve also exchanged edamame for the chickpeas.
