Miso-lemon dressing

Miso-lemon dressing

Recently it has been quite difficult to fing gnocchi in our usual grocery stores, and gnocchi were our staples for late Friday dinners when we arrived in the country. So I have had to find a replacement. Today I tried soba (buckwheat noodles) that I prepared with plenty of greens and I decided to serve them not with some regular sauce made from soya sauce such as tsuyu, but rather a white miso base. And since I had some fresh lemon I also used it. The redult was even better than I expected. The sweet white miso and the lemon are a super match. The lemon taste is very present, cancelling the sweetness of the miso and the miso softening the bitterness of the lemon. So here is my recipe for 2 people.

- 200g of soba noodles, I use 100% buckwheat flour noodles

- 4 tsp of white miso

- 1/4 of lemon  

- 1 tsp of soya sauce

- brocoli, brocoli sprouts, green beans, baby spinach... asparagus, green peas, horse beans... are all good too

Boil a large amount of water to cook the soba. In the meantime in a heated pan slightly oiled cook the washed vegetables. The much remsin crispy, so don't over cook them. In a bowl mix together the miso, the lemon juice, the soya sauce.  Serve ghe noodles in a large bowl, add the miso dressing and stir well, add the vegetables. Eat right away and have a beautiful weekend. Isumi is under the rain, and work for the museum exhibition is what I have to do today!
