Hello deliciously-charred broccolini florets, marinated in juicy umami flavour!
These roasted veg have stolen the hearts of many so far with their deep miso-sesame flavour balanced with rice wine vinegar and fresh orange juice. I’ve unleashed them at a few BBQ’s and parties with great results so it seemed like a reasonable time to share the tried & tested recipe with all you plant-eating machines.
Broccolini is definitely on the fancy pants end of the veggie scale, but the magic of this marinade would brighten up even decidedly tame plants.
Bell peppers, zucchini, portobello mushrooms, shallots and red onions all kill with a good dredging of this sauce. When summer comes around I will be taking this to the grill, but until then, turn your ovens up high and roast those babies till tender-crisp.
Best part is- they take less than 30 minutes to come together, prep included.
Just whisk the marinade ingredients together, toss the broccolini until fully coated and let them sit until the oven is preheated. A final drizzle of the sauce at the end brightens up the flavour and ensures you don’t lose all the pow during the cooking.
- 2 tbsp yellow/white miso paste
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp tamari or soy sauce
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tbsp unseasoned rice wine vinegar
- 3 tbsp fresh orange juice (lime or juice works well here too)
- 1/2 tsp Sriracha or hot chili sauce
- 2 tsp sesame seeds (plus more for garnish if you like)
- Orange slices for garnish (optional)
- Preheat your oven to 450 F.
- Whisk all of the miso-sesame marinade ingredients together in a medium bowl.
- In a large bowl, add your broccolini. Drizzle with all of the miso marinade, reserving 1 tbsp. Use your hands or tongs to toss the broccoli, coating with the marinade. Transfer to a large baking sheet (prepared with aluminum foil to help your cleaning if you like)
- Roast broccolini for 15-17 minutes, or until the florets are browned and crispy and the stems are tender but still firm.
- Remove from the oven and toss with remaining sauce to coat. Sprinkle with extra sesame seeds as desired.
