I loved yesterday’s OFM. Maybe it’s just the long-weekend mood I was in, but everything seemed interesting and delicious – from Rachel Cooke daring to tell it like it is about task-obsessed men in the kitchen to Jay Rayner’s piece about Bruno Loubet’s swerve towards vegetables, following in the foodsteps of Passard the Great & Robuchon the Tagalong.
Bruno’s recipes seemed utterly doable, and as I have miso paste I needed to finish I went off to the market to pick up aubergines and asparagus to make recipe no 5 here.
My miso paste wasn’t sweet, so I added some cooked apples I had to hand. I didn’t want to faff about with chopping and deep frying onion rings so I added a tiny clove of fresh garlic before blitzing everything and roasted the asparagus to ensure a crispy texture. A squeeze of lime finished it off perfectly and the children approved. A keeper.
