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


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