Carmelized Ginger Miso Onions

I had a vegetarian friend over for dinner this week so I decided to find something on the internet to make. I had never looked at Japanese vegetarian blogs and thought it was about time. I came a “[Nakaya] no Gohan” – a great resource for vegetarian cooking in Japan. The blog is in Japanese and they update almost every day. There are a few of their recipes on my to make list. 

These onions would be good as a side dish, as a hamburger topping or added to your favorite salad. I mixed them up with barley and lentils for a nice little side dish.

Carmelized Ginger Miso Onions

Original recipe here on [Nakaya] no Gohan

2 onions, sliced thinly
1 1/2 tablespoons miso
1 tablespoon grated ginger
2 tablespoons ground sesame seeds

Add the onions to a sauce pan with one tablespoon of water. Top with the ginger and miso. Cover and cook on low heat (stirring occasionally) until the onions have carmelized. Turn off the stove and add the sesame seeds. Serve.

  3. Mmmm, these look awesome! Wondering what they’d be like in an avocado sarnie… [Nakaya] no Gohan is a great-looking blog too, might have to try the kinako oatmeal crackers and the yaki bifun. Hungry now…
