Miso-Lime Butter Saute
bok choy / cauliflower / edamame

Active: 35 min Total: 35 min
This miso-lime butter makes a luscious sauce for a simple weeknight saute!
Smarts: We're doubling our rice here so that we have enough for Wednesday's fried rice.


Miso-Lime Butter Saute:
  • Garlic - 3 cloves , sliced
  • Cauliflower - 1 lb , chopped
  • Green onions - 1 stalk , chopped finely
  • Cilantro - 1/4 bunch , chopped
  • Baby bok choy (sub regular bok choy or zucchini) - 3/4 lb , chopped
  • Butter - 3 Tbsp
  • Miso, any type - 1 Tbsp
  • Lime juice - 1 tsp
  • Cooking oil - 1 Tbsp
  • Edamame, shelled - 2 cups
  • Soy sauce, low-sodium - 2 to 4 tsp
Rice (enough for two meals):
  • Rice, brown or white (uncooked - enough for 2 meals) - 1 2/3 cups


  1. Rice - This makes enough for Wednesday's dinner. For white rice, rinse until clear. Fill a saucepan or Dutch oven (or rice cooker) with rice, water (use 2:1 ratio for water to rice), and some salt. Cover with lid and bring to a boil. Once water boils, stir, lower heat to a low-medium, and cover. Check white rice after ~20 min; brown at ~45 min. Rice is done when it's absorbed all the water. If it's not done, leave the cover on until all water has been absorbed. Take cover off to release steam and fluff with a wooden spoon after 5 minutes. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead).
  2. Garlic / Cauliflower / Green onions / Cilantro - Prep as directed. (Can be done up to 4 days ahead)
  3. Bok choy - Halve bok choy lengthwise and then rinse thoroughly in cold water in case any dirt got trapped in the stems. Drain and then chop. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  4. Make miso-lime butter - Soften butter in microwave for ~10 seconds. Mash in miso, lime juice, and green onions. If you like spice, add in a few drops of your favorite hot sauce. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)

  1. Par-cook cauliflower by placing into a microwave-safe container. Cover with a damp paper towel and microwave for 2 1/2 minutes.
  2. Heat a skillet, saute pan or wok over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil and then bok choy to heated oil. Saute for 2 to 3 minutes before adding garlic, cauliflower and frozen edamame. Saute veggies until they’re tender but still crispy, another 3 to 5 minutes. Finish with soy sauce.
  3. Remove from heat and add in miso-lime butter and cilantro. Toss through. Finish with more lime juice if desired. Enjoy over rice (remember to save half the rice for Wednesday's fried rice)!
