Grilled Asparagus with Vegan Miso Lime Mayonnaise

grilled with Miso When asparagus is in season in the spring, Lime Mayonnaise is the ideal Japanese fusion side dish. Asparagus lightly charred on the grill is served with a savory and acidic mayonnaise dip with a dash of miso, a Japanese ingredient.

4 Servings


Vegan Miso Lime Mayo

1/4 cup vegan mayo

2 tsp miso paste of your choice preferably authentic Japanese miso

lime zest from a half lime

1/2 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice from 1/2 to 1 lime

1/4 tsp toasted sesame oil

Grilled Asparagus

1 lb green asparagus

1/2 tbsp extra virgin

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

Suggested Condiment

Shichimi togarashi pepper Japanese 7-spice hot pepper blend

How to prepare:

Combine vegan mayonnaise, miso paste, lime juice, lime zest, and toasted sesame oil in a small bowl. Mix thoroughly and keep aside.

Prepare the asparagus next. Clean the asparagus by rinsing it under running water. They were towel-dried to remove additional moisture.

Remove the rough bottom portion of asparagus where it naturally breaks. Then, trim the end so that it is cleanly cut (optional.) Using a vegetable peeler, you may partially shave the peel of thick asparagus. The cut-off bottoms are ideal for preparing asparagus soup. They must be preserved and frozen!

Season the asparagus with salt and black pepper after coating it with extra virgin olive oil. Give the mixture a short stir to ensure a uniform coating.

Bring a grill pan to a medium-high temperature. Cook the asparagus in a single layer, being careful not to overcrowd the grill pan. Leave them on one side to obtain a nice char, then flip and cook the other side. Depending on the thickness, it should take between 5 and 10 minutes to cook and char. Repeat the steps if you are cooking in many batches.

Serve immediately with miso-mayonnaise dip on the side and shichimi pepper for flavor and scent.
