Grilled Vegetables with Miso Sabayon

Recipe adapted from Andrew Zimmern

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes


For the Miso Sabayon:

2 egg yolks

3 tablespoons granulated sugar

⅓ cup white miso paste

¼ cup dashi

¼ cup sake

For the Grilled Vegetables:

1 pound asparagus, trimmed and cleaned

1 pound shiitake mushrooms, trimmed and cleaned

1 pound Asian broccoli, steamed and shocked in an ice bath, drained

3 tablespoons peanut oil

Kosher salt, to taste

1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds


1. Make the sabayon: In a medium metal bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, sugar, miso, dashi and sake. Set the bowl over a medium saucepan of simmering water, whisking constantly, until the eggs have set and sabayon has thickened, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove and set aside. Make ahead: The sabayon can be made 1 day ahead, then covered and chilled until ready to use.

2. Make the grilled vegetables: Brush the vegetables with the peanut oil. Place a large grill pan over medium-high heat. Place the asparagus and mushrooms in a single layer in the pan and cook, turning occasionally, until almost tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the broccoli and continue to cook until lightly charred and cooked through, another 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the vegetables and season with salt. Sprinkle the toasted sesame seeds on top. Serve the grilled vegetables alongside the miso sabayon.
