    Carrot and miso dressing recipe

    A delightful salad dressing from Il Fornaio, blending the flavours of miso and orange blossom

    Why miso?

    Miso is an original and ultimate pro-biotic. Carrot and ginger are prebiotics that activate probiotics. Ginger and carrot balance out the sour flavours of miso.

    Miso is full of all essential amino acids, stimulates digestion, restores probiotics, aids digestion, is an excellent sources of B vitamins, strengthens blood quality, strengthens immune system, and is high in antioxidants.

    Ingredients

    2 carrots


    2 tablespoons grapeseed oil


    2.5cm ginger root


    ¼ cup rice vinegar


    3 tablespoons white miso


    3 teaspoons sugar (raw is best)


    ½ teaspoon xantham


    Orange blossom water, or orange juice to flavour


    Method

    1. Cold press carrot, ginger, vinegar and oils to extract juice.


    2. Gently whisk in miso.


    3. Season with carrot juice, extra ginger, sugar and orange blossom/juice to make as sweet or as bitter as required (to taste). In order to stabilise sauce and stop sauce splitting, we whisk in about ½ teaspoon xantham gum at room temperature.


    Use sparingly with other salad dressings to bring out the natural salts and sugars of chosen vegetables.


    This recipe works best with leafy, springtime greens, and very lightly pickled vegetables.
