with roasted Brussels sprouts and carrots

Active: 45 Total: 45

Our entire community loves any meal with miso butter, so we kept this one simple. The seared tofu slices and vegetable mix on the side are a great combination for fall, but the savory miso butter really takes it all up a notch.

Prep

  1. Tofu - If tofu is packaged in water, press out liquid first, like in this video. Then slice into 1/2” / 1.3 cm thick strips. (Can be done 1 day ahead)

  2. Make miso butter - (If prepping right before cooking, get oven heating first.) Soften butter in microwave for ~10 seconds. Chop cilantro. Mash miso, lime juice, and cilantro into softened butter. If you like spice, add in a few drops of your favorite hot sauce (not on ingredients list). (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)

  3. Brussels sprouts / Carrots - Prep as directed and combine. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)

Make

  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.

  2. Toss Brussels sprouts and carrots with oil (portion for vegetables), mustard, ground coriander, and some salt and pepper. Spread out on a sheet pan and roast, shaking the pan halfway through cooking, until tender, 15 to 22 minutes.

  3. While vegetables are cooking, heat a grill pan or skillet with oil (portion for tofu) over medium-high heat. Sear tofu on both sides until golden brown and crisp, 8 to 10 minutes total, seasoning it with some salt and pepper as it cooks. Do this in batches if needed.

  4. Squeeze lemon juice over vegetables.

  5. Spoon miso butter over warm tofu. Serve vegetables on the side.
