  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Japanese, Vegetables, Appetizers

 Ingredients List

  • 6 Asparagus stalks; peeled
  • 1/2 c Shiro miso
  • 1 tb Mustard, powdered


Snap the tips from the asparagus and save for future use. Slice the
stalks lengthwise into strips 1/2" wide, then cut these into 1 1/2"
lengths. Over high heat, bring 2 c water to a boil. Add the
asparagus, return to the boil, and drain immediately in a sieve. Run
under cold water to cool them quickly, and pat dry with paper towels.

In a small mixing bowl, combine the miso with the dry mustard & mix
until smooth. Spread half the mixture in a shallow baking dish &
cover with a double thickness of cheesecloth the size of the dish.
Place the asparagus in one layer on the cheesecloth & cover with
another double thickness of cheesecloth. Top with the remaining miso
& mustard mixture. Marinate for about 3 hours at room temperature,
or refrigerate overnight.

Discard the dressing before serving the asparagus.
