My Favourite Miso Greens


These are my go-to side at the moment! So easy and so tasty. Miso is a paste made of fermented soybeans and is rich in essential minerals. As a fermented foods, it’s also a great source of beneficial bacteria for the gut – a healthy gut leads to a healthy body! I love pairing this with a simply grilled or Asian-inspired fish.

Miso Greens

Serves: 2-4


2-3 cups mixed greens (broccoli florets, chopped kale, spinach, bok choy, zucchini sliced etc.)
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/3 cup boiling water
1-2 tbsp sesame seeds

Miso sauce:

1 tbsp white miso paste
1 tbsp tamari sauce
1 heaped tbsp dijon mustard
1 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tbsp honey or maple syrup – can omit
1 tsp grated ginger
1/4 cup warm water


Add all miso sauce ingredients into a bowl and whisk – set aside.
Heat 1 tbsp coconut oil in a large frying pan or wok.
When the pan is hot, add the greens and stir-fry them until they start to soften.
Add the boiling water – this helps the greens to steam up and cook.
Start to drizzle over the miso sauce above. Reserve about 2-3 tbsp of sauce for later.
Plate up the greens and drizzle the remaining sauce. Sprinkle with sesame seeds to serve.
