Healthy Miso Ginger Carrot Salad Dressing

January 29th, 2015 | 1 comment

This new year has started out with a BANG! With trips to San Francisco and Bahamas and a little set-back with my rescue pup Harlow’s paw (she’s on the mend!) I am looking forward to the next few weeks at home and in the kitchen. After traveling and being on-the-go so much in the last few weeks my body is craving clean, healthful meals with nutrient-rich simple ingredients.

After dining at Nobu at the Atlantis Resort in Paradise Island, Bahamas last week, I came back to Brooklyn with an itch for Asian-inspired cuisine. I decided to spend the day in the kitchen whipping up and recreating two of my favorite Asian-inspired meals with my DeAnna touch; Carrot Ginger Miso salad dressing (recipe below) and Veggie Loaded Miso Soup(recipe here).

Okay, back to miso….

Whenever I am at any Japanese restaurant I love to order a basic green salad with that lovely orange colored dressing. However, since you never can fully regulate what goes into the food you’re eating while dining out, I decided to recreate my long-time favorite at home and boy was this a goodie. 

My version tastes EXACTLY like the one you’ll find at your local sushi restaurant, however this recipe is super clean and healthy. Let’s see what some of the star ingredients have to say:

Miso helps aid in healthy digestion and contains a wide range of nutritents and minerals

Carrot boasts Potassium, Vitamin A, Dietary Fiber, beta-carotene(antioxidants)

Ginger anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties , aids in digestion and improves circulation

Clean n’ Delicious Japanese-inspired Miso Ginger Carrot Dressing:

You’ll need:

  • 1 Cup Organic Sunflower Oil
  • ½ Cup Rice Wine Vinegar Lite
  • ¼ cup Brigg’s Liquid Amino Acid (soy sauce alternative)
  • 2 TBSP Toasted Sesame Oil
  • ¼ cup water
  • 3 medium carrots peeled and chopped
  • ¼ cup peeled fresh ginger (or a little more, I like a lot!)
  • ¼ – ½ medium raw onion, loose chop
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 – 2 TBSP Miso Paste

To Make:

In a high speed blender, I used a Vitamix, combine all ingredients in the order listed. Blend on medium to high speed for 60-90 seconds, or until all ingredients are incorporated. I taste it and then adjust the onion, lemon juice and ginger accordingly.

Store in a glass jar in the fridge for up to a week. Top on salads or use as a veggie dip. Enjoy!
