I am a bit in love with miso. It adds this incredible depth of flavor, sometimes known as “umami”, and when paired with mushrooms it’s absolutely amazing. Above, I’ve roasted chicken in a miso-based sauce, with lots of shitakes. The roasted brussel sprouts are zested with lemon, a fresh, nutty compliment to the chicken pasta dish.
