This dressing is absolute heaven. You'll want to pour it on everything.
The roasted carrot, miso and ginger combine to make a sweet / savoury and ridiculously crave-able dressing that can fancy up even a simple bowl of steamed vegetables or salad. I've been making dreamy dinner bowls with crispy tofu, raw greens, steamed broccoli and lots of avocado.
Let me know how you use it. x
2 medium or one large carrot
2 Tbsp miso paste - potentially less if you're using a dark miso or more if using white miso
1/4 cup oil - I use a mild olive oil but any neutral oil will work
juice of one juicy lemon
2 tsp honey - one for roasting and one for blending with dressing (may not need all the honey if you use white miso)
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp finely grated ginger (more if you like)
1/2 - 3/4 cup water
Peel and roughly chop carrots. Drizzle with oil and 1 tsp of honey. Roast until golden and tender.
(Prepare this dressing in a blender or use a hand held blender. I use my hand held blender as it's pretty grunty and makes the dressing lovely and smooth.)
Blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy. Start with 1/2 a cup of water and add more slowly till you get a thick but pourable texture. The dressing will thicken more once chilled so you may need to add a little water before serving to get a good pouring consistency.
