You know those kind of dishes that are half way finished before they reach the dinner table? Well this is one of them. Every time I make these miso garlic roasted cauliflower bites I end up eating most of it. “Just one bite” I tell myself. Jam packed with umami, and rich in flavour, these will make a perfect addition to your lunch, dinner or party.
This is one of those recipes that I would make if I’d have dinner guests or a party. It’s such an easy recipe and shows how delicious vegan food can be. The marinade is what makes it extra comforting, full of rich ingredients.
These miso garlic roasted cauliflower are great as a side with rice or in a salad. I love serving these as a snack. If you have leftovers you can store them in the fridge and just quickly bake them in the oven before serving once more. They would also be really tasty with this classic tofu scramble or with this smoky pasta salad.
What is miso paste? And what kind do you use in thise garlic cauliflower?
Miso paste is a paste is a fermented soy bean paste. This makes it is rich in minerals and a good source of various vitamins. You can often find this ingredient in Japanese cuisine. For example in miso soup, a very comforting and rich broth.
There are different kinds of miso paste. For this recipe we’ll be using a light miso paste, also known as white or sweet miso. This miso paste is a bit sweeter because it has a higher rice content. Not every white miso paste is the same, you have different outcomes depending on the fermantation time, quality of the ingredients and proportions. You also have darker miso pastes that are, for example, more intense in flavour.
