You didn’t think I was going to stop at only one Ravi Kapur recipe, did you? The only difference here is this adapted dish takes five minutes, unlike the others.
Avocado makes an unlikely side or appetizer for a warm-weather meal here. Don’t be put off by its simplicity: this dish is sweet, salty, creamy, and complex. In other words, it’s delicious.
3 tablespoons mirin
1/4 cup sake
1/2 cup red or yellow miso
2 tablespoons sugar
3 avocados, peeled and sliced
1. In a small saucepan, combine the mirin and sake and boil for 2 minutes. Add the miso and sugar and simmer, stirring to dissolve the sugar, until slightly thickened. Transfer to a small bowl and let cool completely.
2. Serve drizzled over avocado.
