INGREDIENTS

METHOD

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. 
  2. Slice the zucchinis crossways in half and then place onto a baking tray. Use a fork to make holes on the inside surface of the zucchini, all the way down on each zucchini.
  3. In a small bowl, using a fork or mini whisk, mix the miso paste in with the honey and tamari sauce until smooth. 
  4. Brush the miso honey paste mixture over each zucchini half generously. 
  5. Place the tray with zucchinis into the oven for 45 minutes or until you see the paste begin to turn a darker colour with golden edges. 
  6. Remove from the oven and top with black sesame seeds. 

Serving suggestion:

  • Great as a side to roast chicken with a pumpkin and green salad for a complete dinner meal. 
  • As an afternoon snack. 
  • As a topping for soba noodles – just cut up the roasted zucchini halves and place over the top of cooked soba noodles.

 

Prep time: 10 minutes.
Cooking time: 45 minutes.
Serves: 4, as a side dish.
