When I go to the market and have lunch or dinner alone at home that day, it is almost certain that you take to prepare myself a quick dish with my favorite vegetables. Broccoli usually monopolize my menus but lately I am alternating with his small cousin, increasingly easier to find. Bimi recipe with miso, ginger and black garlic is cooked in a moment and adds an oriental touch to the vegetable is going great.
I always recommend having pasta of miso at home, either white – shiro miso – or any variety of darker – as the hatcho miso. It holds a lot of time and is great for marinating fish, meat and vegetables or enhance sauces and soups. With black garlic, a bit of fresh ginger and citrus from the Orange got the bimi copper a new life of intense aromas and umami taste.
Ingredients for 2 persons
- 400 g of bimi, 2 teaspoons of seeds of Sesame (white, black or a mixture), 2 cloves black garlic, 1 piece of ginger, 1 teaspoon soy sauce, juice of 1/2 Orange, 1 teaspoon of miso, 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil (optional), black pepper, salt and extra virgin olive oil.
How to make bimi with miso, ginger and black garlic
First roast the seeds of Sesame in a pan without oil, until they begin to jump, watching that they don’t burn. Remove and set aside. Wash the bimi well and cut in half in the case that they are too large. Peel and chop or slice thin a piece of fresh ginger, the desired size according to what we like–I usually use much, I love. Chop the black garlic cloves.
Squeeze the orange juice and mix in a bowl with the soy sauce, the miso and sesame oil – if we have. Add the garlic and the ginger. Heat a little olive oil in a good skillet or nonstick – also you can use a wok – and add the bimi. Season with salt and pepper and saute over high heat a couple of minutes, until it begins to take color. Add half a cup of water and cook over heat medium 5 minutes.
Add to the skillet mixture of miso, stir well and cover. Cook a few minutes more, the set over medium heat until the bimi is at the desired point. Monitor not sticking too by adding a little more water if necessary. Serve with reserved sesame seeds and a few drops of sesame oil, if desired.
