Beet Carpaccio with Ginger-Miso Vinaigrette

James Carrier

Notes: To avoid staining your hands when preparing beets, wear rubber gloves. Gold-colored shiro miso (the same used for Japanese miso soup; also called light or white soybean paste) is available with ethnic foods in some supermarkets and in Asian grocery stores. You can make the vinaigrette and prepare the beets (steps 1 and 2) up to 1 day ahead; cover separately airtight and chill.

Yield: Makes 4 first-course servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 4 teaspoons honey
  • 4 teaspoons shiro miso (see notes) or soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons salad oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 2 beets (2 in. diameter, about 6 oz. each)

Preparation

  1. 1. In a small bowl, mix mustard with 4 teaspoons water until smooth; let stand 5 minutes. Whisk in lemon juice, honey, miso, oil, and ginger.
  2. 2. Trim and discard tops and root ends from beets. Scrub beets well, then pare peel with a vegetable peeler and discard. Using the vegetable peeler or a mandoline, slice beets paper thin. Arrange slices equally, slightly overlapping, in a ring on each of four salad plates.
