We're halfway through May but here in Toronto, it still feels like early spring. It's currently 10C outside and this warm spicy miso roasted broccoli sounds really good right now.
Have you tried Miso paste before? It's soooo good. It ads umami taste to meals - that great savory taste you need along with the other four tastes (sweetness, saltiness, bitterness, and sourness) to make your food extra good.
Miso is usually made with fermented soybeans and salt, sometimes rice, or barley. I'm using chickpea miso here! It's so good, definitely a staple in my kitchen. I also really like brown rice miso. Usually, you should add miso at the end of cooking but I really like how it flavors the broccoli while it cooks in the oven. That's honestly the best part about this dish - it's full of flavor. And it has a crunch too thanks to the sesame seeds on top. So good!
How are you coping with quarantine? I'm currently finishing this post at 3:30am. Talk about procrastination, right?
Anyway, if you're anything like me, you probably get midnight cravings too. I love having leftovers of this miso roasted broccoli with plain rice as a snack at night. Or any time of the day, really. The seasoning on the broccoli is pretty salty so I like to serve it with something simple like rice, quinoa, potatoes, or even avocado toast would be great!
You can store this in the fridge for up to 4 days. I love making this on a Sunday and putting it on salads or avocado toast throughout the week. Happy cooking!

this looks delicious! I have broccoli at home and I was looking for new ideas what to do with it
I made this with some slight modifications due to lacking ingredients on hand, but it was absolutely great! I also have done something similar with brussel sprouts and recommend both (and miso paste in general) to everyone!

This was delicious! I substituted teriyaki sauce and 75 ml of licorice extract for the maple syrup but it came out delicious
I couldn`t even function at 3.30am lol. This miso broccoli sounds divine though, I love the umami from miso!

I just love how versatile miso paste is! This is such a great usage of miso, and the perfect side dish for the entire family!
Thanks for the recipe. I roast brocolli all the time buy I rarely add anything to it, so it's pretty plain and boring. Definatly making this recipe next time.
I did not know Miso could be made out of Chickpeas. I love the snacking on a healthy snack at midnight so I stay healthy. Thanks for sharing this creative, healthy snack!
I've never used miso paste. I have to see if I can find some or order online. I love broccoli and use it a lot when in season. So, going to give this a try asap!

I love how easy this recipe is to make and miso broccoli is one of my favorite meals. Super healthy and do good for you!
I only use salt and pepper to roast my broccoli! I need to up my game and try this next time. Looks so yummy!
Love broccoli in any form and this sounds like a great dish to try. I will make this for dinner tonight.
Two of my favorite foods are miso and broccoli, so this is a perfect new recipe for me. It looks like a perfect accompaniment to many of the Asian dishes I make.
Roasted broccoli tastes just amazing. And with miso it sounds super inviting. Love the intense flavors of miso in any dish.
I love the suggestion of enjoying this with avocado and toast, that was the prefect breakfast for me this week. so yummy!
Where does the garlic come into play? It's in the ingredient list but nowhere in the instructions!

I mix it into the sauce. I've fixed the recipe, I'm sorry for the confusion!
This was fantastic, i used broccoli spears and did as a side to have with Indonesian chicken rice.
Was sweet,juicy and beautifuly spiced/flavoured but with bite and a lovely lightly charred smokiness,what a find.
