I would like to start by saying… I f***ing love squash.
I just tried this out last night, I had a totally different blog post for today, but it was that good. The tangy miso sauce and sweetness of the squash is a magically moment, give this a go!!
MISO GLAZED SQUASH ON STEAMED GREENS
What do you need?
1 winter squash, I used acorn squash
patience (haha seriously I hate peeling squash, but it’s worth it I promise)
1/4 cup of miso paste
1/3 cup of water
3 tablespoons of rice vinegar
3 tablespoons of white wine vinegar
greens (I used kale, chard, and spinach)
2 tablespoons of finely chopped chives
What to do
First cut the squash, take out the seeds (you should roast them, just saying..) Then cut the squash into small chunks and cut off the rind. Yes. This is my favourite part. Juuust kidding.
Steam the squash chunks for 10-12 minutes. I used my steamer baskets.
While the squash is steaming combine the miso, water, and vinegars into a saucepan and whisk together until it comes to a boil.
Put the squash into a 9×13 baking pan and cover with miso sauce.
Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes.
Just before the squash is done, steam your greens for 4 minutes, again I used my steamer baskets, but use whatever you have.
Place the miso glazed squash on top of your bed of steamed greens, and top with chives.
