  • 1 bunch fresh Asparagus
  • 2 Tbs white Miso
  • 3 Tsp Dijon style prepared Mustard (or whole grain mustard)
  • 2-3 Tbs water or vegetable stock


  • Trim away the tough ends of the asparagus. 
  • Cook the asparagus spears in a few inches of water with a pinch of sea salt until tender, but still firm and bright green.
  • Mix the mustard, white miso and water (or stock) together, and serve over the freshly cooked asparagus.


Asparagus is only in season for a few weeks each year and can be enjoyed then as something special. Asparagus is a good source of antioxidants and vitamins including vitamins K, C, A and it is very delicious, especially when teamed up with this sauce.
