GC picked up some beautiful red onions at the market. We grilled with olive oil and topped with a generous spoonful of fresh sage pesto. This was a really lovely side dish.
Tonight I served grilled eggplant and roasted vegetables with a savory-sweet miso sauce that I made from a recipe from Nobu’s Vegetarian Cookbook. I couldn’t find the white miso (shiromiso), a sweet miso that is often used in Kyoto, Japan, so I used regular miso sweetened with a little sugar.
Brussels sprouts are in season September through March. I love this simple recipe.
I often sauté Padrón peppers as a quick side dish, but tonight I used a bunch of sweet peppers that I found at my neighborhood farmers’ market. Sweet peppers rank high on the Environmental Working Group’s Pesticides in Produce List, meaning high levels of pesticide residues are commonly found on them. Definitely good to choose organic!
