Miso Asparagus with Roast Spring Vegetables

Miso asparagus seems like an odd combination, but the saltiness of the paste with butter is a pretty grand way to add just a hint of different flavor to asparagus. These are flash cooked so still have plenty of crunch and adorn the top of this white bean ‘hummus’ and roast spring vegetables feels like the loveliest way to welcome spring.

Some of us are unlucky to be intolerant to chickpeas and I am such a person so came up with this white bean hummus which tastes as good as the real deal. It comes together in only a couple of minutes and lasts up to two weeks in your fridge so it’s a perfect snack to have ready whether eating with roast vegetables and miso asparagus or with some crackers.

This is one of those dishes you could easily double and serve as a side and to be honest, I so would if I was you because this is incredibly satisfying and The crunchy and fresh asparagus, with the full of flavor root vegetables accompany perfectly would work alongside a roast perfectly.

This also surprised me as I don’t much like asparagus, but decided to give them another try and would absolutely make them again in the butter mix because it’s a lazy recipe on it’s own that still holds a unique flavor thanks to the miso paste.
