Roasted Asparagus with Miso Dressing

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

Miso has a rich taste, which is perfect for asparagus. This recipe has a nice Asian flavor and I like to serve this especially with teriyaki steak or salmon, and a crisp green salad.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Bend asparagus gently and allow to snap where they naturally break; discard end pieces.
  3. Lay asparagus on a roasting pan, and drizzle with oil and lightly sprinkle with salt.
  4. Roast for 20 minutes or until they are cooked through but not soft, shaking the pan mid-way through cooking.
  5. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  6. Whisk together the rice vinegar, miso, water, sesame oil, and sugar, until sugar is dissolved and everything is thoroughly combined.
  7. Drizzle dressing over cool asparagus and allow to"marinate" at room temperature for 15-20 minutes before serving.

I like the taste of miso. I cooked the asparagus the day before using it. I then used the asparagus as a cold divided between the meat and veggies on a plate. Looked great and sure tasted good with the miso dressing over it. Thanks Sue
