This is a super simple, versatile, comfort -food recipe that we hope will make easy use of the ample supply of early greens. The dressing can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator for at least a week. The greens and sauce, on top of any cooked grain (rice, barley, farro, etc) or noodles, make a complete meal.
3 parts miso (sweet white or sweet tasting brown is my preferred, but for a fuller taste, try any of the other varieties)
3 parts tahini
2 parts warm water
1 part olive or sesame oil (optional)
Optional additional flavorings (hot pepper flakes or cayenne powder, garlic, ginger, etc)
Steam or saute kale, bok choy, swiss chard, komatsuna or other farm greens. Blend dressing ingredients and season to your liking (or add more or less miso to your taste). Serve over grain or noodles. Roasted sesame or sunflower seeds or chopped radishes add flavor and appeal on top!
