Ingredients

Dressing:

3 tablespoons yellow miso

2 tablespoons water

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

1 teaspoon soy sauce

1-inch piece peeled fresh ginger, grated (about 1 tablespoon)

1/2 to 1 Thai bird chile, minced with seeds

1/2 cup peanut oil

Vegetables:

1/2 bunch broccoli, cut in large florets

1/2 bunch cauliflower, cut in large florets

2 carrots, cut in thick slices

1 yellow or zucchini squash, cut in thick rounds

1/2 to 1 head fennel, cut into thin wedges

1 bunch asparagus

8 cloves garlic

1 bunch scallions

Directions

  1. For the dressing: Whisk the miso, water, vinegar, soy sauce, ginger, and chile, to taste, in a bowl. Gradually whisk in the oil, starting with a few drops and then adding the rest in a steady stream to make a smooth, slightly thick dressing. Serve or refrigerate in a tightly sealed container for up to 3 days.
  2. For the vegetables: Pour 1-inch or more of water in a wok or skillet and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Place the vegetables in a bamboo or collapsible steamer. Set the steamer over the boiling water, cover, and cook for 5 to 8 minutes, or just until the vegetables are crisp tender. Serve warm or at room temperature with the dressing.
