Spicy Steamed Mussels in Miso Broth


Servings: 2      Prep Time: 6 minutes      Cook Time: 10 minutes

Miso & Easy is ready-to-use miso paste in a squeeze bottle. You can use regular miso paste - the recipe is flexible to use either.


1 pound live mussels
2 teaspoons cooking oil
1/2 onion, diced
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger
1 tomato, diced
handful fresh leafy vegetable (like baby bok choy, cabbage or spinach)
2 cups vegetable broth
2 tablespoons Miso & Easy (or 1 tablespoon miso paste)
1 teaspoon hot chili sauce (like Sriracha), or more to taste
2 wedges lime


1. Scrub the mussels and discard any with broken shells.

2. Heat a wok or saute pan over medium-high heat and swirl in the cooking oil. Add the onions and saute for 2 minutes. Add in the ginger and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add in the broth, miso and hot chili sauce and turn the heat to high.

3. When simmering, add the tomatoes, vegetables and the mussels. Cover and let steam for 3 minutes or until the mussels have opened. Discard any mussels that have not opened. Serve with lime.
